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.
