I'd like to think I learn something every week. I hope so. Over the weekend, I've been at a painting class run by Riverton artist, Dawn Barry. Turns out she's a friend of my old school friend, Astrid (who lives in Auckland but has a wee place at Riverton and comes here in the holidays), and so was one of the women I was sitting next to. Small world. Here's some photos from the class:
Lastly, we did a seascape using plaster, sand and so on, applied with a palette knife for texture. When it dried, we added layer after layer of thin washes. Mine wasn't very good so I'm just showing some that others did. Dawn's sample is top left. All in all, we had a great time.
