I realise, thanks to one of my followers, that I didn't actually explain about acrylic ATCs. They are actually clear plastic (acrylic), meaning that different layers on the front and back can been seen from both sides. Hopefully, that is clearer (sorry about the pun!) when you see my next one.
This week at Wanderlust, Rachel Urista showed us how she used pastels and graphite with acrylic paint in her work. Well, I have several sticks of soft pastels and graphite knocking around and, on the whole, I don't use them. So this was a very good exercise for me. Here are the end results. What do you think?
Last week I went to the Abstract Expressionism exhibition at the Royal Academy. As well as thoroughly enjoying (most of) what I saw, I learnt a lot and came across artists I had not previously heard of.
Well, of course, once I was home, I had to have a go at creating my own abstract pieces. I'm not sure how successful they are, but I enjoyed doing them!
