A place to share my creative pursuits

Licorice Allsorts WIP#1

Leave a comment

Last night of art class tonight for the year. Don’t go back until end of January 2009. Very sad! Went to the Christmas lunch for the arts and craft group that runs the class. Lots of nice people and yummy food.

Didn’t know what to start on tonight as I finished the cat painting last week. So decided to try some licorice allsorts I photographed a month or so ago. Trying a new support – Richeson Gator Foam board: not sure I like it but I’ll see how it goes.

This is only at stage 2 of 4, with quite a few layers of colour to go. I’ve decided to go the colourful route with this one. It will be interesting to see how it pans out. Still quite a bit of blending to do. Think of this as a first draft. (took the photo at class tonight, will take a better one in daylight, without shadow from my easel in the way!)
