Back home for a couple of days between French holiday and the Somerset art retreat and have realized that what with all the pack and unpacking, son packing for university and general stuff do do after a holiday I am not going to get a blog post written about France anytime soon. So instead, and with the upcoming art retreat in mind, I thought I’d share with you some of the painting I have been doing over the last few weeks.
The inspiration is Mati Rose McDonough’s book Daring Adventures in Paint. Mati takes you through a series of lessons and techniques, each building on the last, until in the final lesson you can use all the techniques in the book. I think it works very well as a guide and like most good things you can take from it what you need, adapting the techniques to your preferences and tastes.
So far I have done three pictures all of which are new departures for me, building on the techniques in the book. I would welcome your comments.
Back after the art retreat so excited about it!
