A Creative Breakthrough
Artistic Afternoon - Acrylic on canvas 20x24" - Stage 1
I arrived at my good friend Joannie's house on Wednesday evening, desperate for a good 'friendly' kick up the artistic backside! I've found it very difficult to get back in touch with the creative side of myself; the yearning to create has been there recently but I can't seem to turn that need into something physical. I came to the right place! Joannie had me playing with acrylic inks; printing, dribbling and slopping around in her studio like two children at playschool - Great fun! On Friday we continued playing with inks but with more of an idea as to what we wished to achieve with them, both working on a floral, square piece. Today I decided to grab a large canvas out of the car and tackle a life painting in acrylics. Joannie seemed like the perfect subject to tackle as she worked away on her inked floral.
So, my trip has been just what I needed, Joannie has been marvellous and I am back!!!
