'Papoose' - Atelier Acrylic Interactives
This is the third painting I made during Joannies stay. After playing with the new paints I was dying to try them on a portrait and had this reference printed out from years ago. I spent and 1 and 30 minutes pushing the paints around freely on the surface with a 1" flat brush and enjoyed every second. My aims were to use the reference rather than copy it, work with form and tone and keep things loose and painterly. I am pleased with the result.
I am off to a residential spa for the weekend. I have prepared a new Derwent pink floral sketchbook with decorative papers to take with me. Sadly my pc is still sick and I'm using my Son's laptop, so scanning sketchbook pages is difficult at the moment but I am still sketching and I will update you all just as soon as my pc has been fixed.
