Artsy Crafts course with Lynne Perrella

I have been so lucky recently. First a day with Dina Wakley and then two days with Lynne Perrella.

On the first day we made a triptych. The relevant bits of wood were supplied and we decorated them under Lynne's guidance and then put them together.

To start we applied gesso to the wood. Once dry, we stuck on a photocopy of a face, applied a wash of paint over it and then dry-brushed the background around it with our chosen colours. The next step was to apply paint through stencils and build up lots of layers. This took up the morning. In the afternoon we made our embellishments - stamping and cutting them out and arranging them on the triptych.

Here's another view, before the hinges were added (courtesy of Leandra).

Gosh you lucky thing!

This is a totally brilliant project... I love the depth the layers have given and the colour tones you have used. Perfect :)
