Trying new techniques and having fun!

Usually when I go to art club, I do my own thing, even though the tutor demonstrates weekly. That's not bad manners, he is fine with that and demonstrates to help those who have lost inspiration.
But this time, he was demonstrating techniques that were new to me, so I decided to watch and learn!

We learned how to paint wet on wet, let it dry, then paint layers of wet on dry to give a fun result.

This is my attempt at that:

Meerkat




Then we painted a wet on wet, let it dry and painted some wet on dry colour blocks. This is my attempt on that:




and finally, because I'd finished way before everyone else, I had a play with the meerkat, coming up with something of my own - wet on wet with salt background and the kat painted in Chinese Ink, using a brush!





This week has been hectic, I'm getting prepared for my book launch/birthday party. I am delighted that some of you have read and enjoyed my book - and even reviewed it. Thank you so much. If you'd like to get the links to the stores selling my book, 'All in the Leaves' - then please look HERE
