With some very pleasing resullts
We began to work with postcards and water colours on a tiny scale.
We then experimented with watered down acrylic paint and oil pastels on calico to create some small textile pieces. We learnt how to mix the two different media with a resist technique and enjoyed how the pastels changed in texture when they were layered with paint.
We then explored how to use drippy paint
When we put it all on show it was amazing to see what we had achieved.
We look forward to another two days of painting the great outdoors next week in a new location.
