A huge thanks from us all to Jackie Whall who visited us today and gave us the low-down on working with acrylics. With her easy style she demonstrated how to paint a simple still-life in the style of Cezanne. So, bowls and fruit at the ready we all had a go and managed to produce some pretty good results (even if one or two of the fruits were a bit strange… but then, so were Cezanne’s when you properly look at ’em!) I’ll be posting some of our members artworks on the site shortly.. watch this space!
For many of us it was the first time we’d tried using acrylics, but with the vibrant colours available and ease of application, I’m sure there’ll be a few more stunning acrylics in our next show.
