hints and tips

• All objects are reflected as a mirror image. If you are not sure of the reflected shape of the object, place a mirror against your painting and view the mirror reflection as a guide. • When I have a break from painting I spray a light mist of water over the acrylic paints on the palette then place it inside a plastic bag and put it in the fridge where it will keep from drying out for a few days. • When mixing paint on your palette it is more economical to add small elements of dark colour gradually into light colour. • I like to take notes for future reference on each painting I am working on in an exercise book. I divide the painting up into sections eg Sky, Background…

fudging and squirling- part 3

Steady Steady Wins the Race Once you have established an accurate fine line drawing, laid the first careful layer of hatched toning in the darker shapes of your precise linework composition and made the ensuing necessary proportional adjustments you will really have something worthwhile going on taped to your drawing board. You can now continue the hatching and crosshatching journey (with a needle sharp pencil) as you introduce more and more different shades of grey (see article- “Shades of Grey”) to the various different abstract shapes your composition is made up of (figure 1). Don’t rush it and keep making the necessary proportional corrections (no matter how small) as you carefully introduce more and more tone to your layout with crosshatching. You will be surprised how dark in tone you can…

this is what we do on fridays

All of these people have been touched by cancer in some way, but on Fridays they can put their problems aside for a while and become absorbed in the joy of creating paintings in a supportive environment. Some of the group have painted before; others have not picked up a paint brush since schooldays. To quote some of them… “An introduction to the art group has led to the most enjoyable and rewarding world of acrylic painting. It’s opened up a whole new perspective on life.” “There’s a sense of freedom here, playing with paint and creating a style you didn’t know you had in this peaceful atmosphere.” “I can lose myself in painting, and just stay in the moment. Nothing else matters when I’m painting.” “The company and surroundings set the ‘artistic juices’ flowing.”…

aspiring to change

Robyn Gibson always loved drawing and painting as a child. She knew that one day she would paint, when she found the time. Early in her busy life, the priorities were sport, work and socialising. Then her family came along. When her two daughters started pre-school, she began to attend two hour painting lessons each week. She did this for a couple of years, but never found sufficient time to practise. Two more years went by before she decided to make a real effort. “I needed a place to paint – where everything was set up and ready to go; otherwise it would all become too difficult,” she relates. “I converted the back of our garage to make my own studio – complete with carpet, a cupboard, a bench and an easel.” “I…

albury countryside

STEP ONE The canvas was primed with gesso but not textured. Usually I like to work on a textured canvas which can give nice shapes and lines to work with. I texture thick acrylic with cards, sometimes using the movement I feel in the subject. I used a small squeegee to mark in the basic lines and movements of the composition. I used a combination of Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Sienna and Alizarin Crimson. STEP TWO I began to work from the sky down. This was unusual for me, as I usually work the painting up as a whole. This painting seemed to flow, doing it this way. I used plastic wrap to apply the paint. The sky was done with Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White; the distant grasses were Burnt Sienna, Titanium White and Yellow Ochre…
