Motivational Monday!

Take a look at the video below.  The artist, Agnes Cecile, demonstrates how dribbled paint can deliberately be incorporated into a painting and look good!  She has drawn the basic outline of a face then goes about "colouring in" the tones to create shape and form.  Although it looks very complicated it is in fact a simple painting, brought to life by her conviction to use unusual colour (blue for a portrait? - why not), focusing detail only in the eyes nose and mouth and then continuing to make it look effortless by encouraging the paint to flow freely. A simple but dramatic image, I think. You may like it, you may hate it - again illustrating how art is so subjective (I love it - and the music). What do you think? You can see more of her work here: http://agnes-cecile.deviantart.com/

Dates for next drop in sessions are: 
March 22
April 19 (only one day because of school holiday)
May 3 & 17

All sessions run 10.30am t0 12.30pm (contact me for address).

Whilst there is no need to book, it is always good if you drop me an email if there is anything specific you would like to achieve/have a go at during the session - I can then plan if needs be.  Feedback so far has been wonderful - thank you!  So if you fancy 2 hours out of life to draw or paint then please come along.

In the meantime, happy creating and learn to love your work - even the dribbles. x
