Art class – week 13

This week was acrylics.  Although I’d done this before Will recommended doing the colour mixing exercises.

I’m not going to bother reproducing them here, but I was pretty pleased with my grey (made from red, blue and yellow).  It’s actually really hard to make the complete absence of colour from three primary colours!

Then in the last half hour I did a very quick picture.  It was quite exhilarating having such a short time, forcing me to do ‘that’ll do’ colour choices, and free strokes, rather than endless precision.

The original:

Finally, I just had to take a picture of the 15 minute demo that Will did, just to remind me what’s possible.  NB. this was by Will Stevens, not me!  Reproduced here with Will’s permission.
