Sunday Group December update

This month we were looking at still life pictures with backgrounds using examples by the CBPS presidents – Qu Leilei and Jane Evans.

The aim was to start by creating a background using various puddles of washes and hake brushes to  paint a background using colours of your choice. Letting it dry (or, because our time was limited, dry it with a hair drier to save time) and then paint a still life over the top.

Worth noting is pictures loose colour if you dry with a hair dryer, so if you can, be patient and wait for it to dry.

These are some of the paintings produced.
