Workshop 2

Remember in a previous post I mentioned a workshop where we had to mix our own greys? Well this is the result of said workshop. We had to do this with a pallet knife, which is fine when you’re just blocking in rectangular shapes but not so easy when you are trying to paint objects that are round or have any texture or pattern.

I spent most of the workshop mixing the greys so had very little time to actually paint the still life. But apparently I did an okay job, as my tutor was happy that I was able to accurately depict the correct tones of each area. Again my control freak would have preferred to have finished it but at least I got to use up all that grey paint on my masking tape painting!

I hope to be able to upload a video on how to mix greys soon. So watch this space!
