At the present time, there are fewer graphics to show here because this was a ‘live’ demonstration conducted for a local art group. I offered as always to show basic techniques of any medium I use, to portray any topic.
The choice was acrylic paints and the subject matter was a landscape–the view from the forest trail in the grounds of Scone Palace in Perthshire, Scotland.
For the session, I informed the members of the group that I’d be experimenting in two ways with the piece.
– I would be working wet-on-wet, which isn’t how I would normally work, but I wanted to remain active and keep the session moving forward–not waiting for layers or colours to dry out.
– I set out to use a 2-inch brush to create a base coat but continued with the same brush throughout.
I left the painting to dry properly for two days before dealing with detail using a range of brush sizes
Photographs of progress were taken by a member of the group and when they are available I will add them to this page.
