I attended a Jane Davies' 'Big Fat Art Workshop, Jane's Blog.
We did many 'technique' exercises working quickly on large sheets of inexpensive paper.
It was all about layers using many different media and working quickly to stop over thinking it.
A sampler recording how to block out large shapes with different edges.
An exercise in breaking all the design rules. Every added element had to be different in shape, colour, placement etc.
I have never been shown how to work properly with acrylics but this didn't stop me.
I made some ugly pieces but learnt a lot doing each exercise.
We all worked hard and fast and it was very freeing.
Thanks Jane for a great workshop.
