Thursday 29th, 11am art session
As we are nearing Halloween, our subject on Thursday morning will be painting pumpkins! They are gorgeous objects. Some of you will have acrylic, others will have watercolour, use either and I will help you along accordingly.
Heavier water colour paper/ multi-media paper is useful as it will buckle less, but as is always the case, you can use what ever you have to hand. It depend more on your access and means and art making happens whatever you have available. If you don’t have any paints, you can still draw. Please feel free to contact me with any questions ahead of the session.
It would be great if you had a pumpkin to work from but if not, I have included some reference images in the pinterest board – https://www.pinterest.co.uk/MiddleDistanceArts/painting-objects/.
If you are working from your own photo, make sure it is as clear as possible and a good size – we want to be able to see all the darks and lights and all the variety in that gorgeous orange.
You are welcome to use a jack-o-lantern carved pumpkin if you would like. I would like you to paint a background – you can make up a background to show off your painting to best advantage. Some of the examples have a lovely dark background which works quite well.
Get your tickets and I’ll see you on Thursday!https://billetto.co.uk/e/middle-distance-online-live-tickets-456087
