'Transparent Couple' Acrylic on canvas board 30 x 30cm
For Sale £75 (inc worldwide shipping)
I have not managed to paint all of this week. Family life and other work has prevented me but I 'broke the duck' today and spent some time in the 'garden studio' (with a rug over my knees and the heating on, mind you!). It is a lovely place to paint as I don't get disturbed by the 'house' and can concentrate. Not too easy today though, as there were noisy blackbirds on the roof and a hedgehog scrabbling around under the floor!
I am really enjoying trying to get the effect of glass and the wonderful reflections that it throws. I had to buy some new WHITE acrylic yesterday. The one I had, didn't give me enough opacity and I was getting very frustrated with it. I have gone for GOLDEN Artist Colors (USA brand) which has been very good today and helped with the light sparkles on the glass.
I have joined WANA (an artist association in Pershore, Worcestershire) and they are putting on an exhibition on Friday of members art so it will be the first time any of my work has been in an exhibition! Very exciting!
