Today I would like to share some pictures of the painting I created for Lesson 5 of Julie Prichard’s Layer Love on line class. This time the challenge was to work to a colour sample. I chose a picture of medieval stone work for my colour sample.
The following are pictures of the painting this photograph inspired, painted using techniques learnt from Julie’s class Layer Love.
This is the finished painting, I ruined it twice and manage to save it on the very last layer of paint PHEW.
I was really happy with this little yellow area, it reminded me of the yellow lichen on the stonework and brought a bright area to a dark corner.
Look closely under that light grey area and you will find some collage, hidden treasure for the sharp eyed amongst you 🙂 The funny thing was this painting started out really pale and bright, then evolved into a much darker finished result. I will definitely be saving up for some more of these Golden Fluid Acrylic paints, they are wonderful.
Many thanks to Julie, for her help and advice and for an excellent class.
If you would like to learn how I created the painting do join up to Julie Prichard’s Layer Love Class. It is Julie’s techniques that I have used to create this.
