Thank you Gaynor :smile:
That is lovely Max :slight_smile:

Bit cloudy and breezy here at the moment, but the weather is so changeable who knows what it will be like later …

Gorgeous flowers Hazel, love those poppies, and Max that scene is really pretty. It’s lovely and sunny here at the moment, just been doing some pruning and weeding in the garden, and soon I’m heading off to see Judith at Frodsham art centre and see the exhibition there :smile:

Here’s a rose I painted a while ago, it’s inspired by one of Wendy Tait’s paintings, and framed in a charity shop frame that cost next to nothing but suits it perfectly.

(Maria Palmer) #6

Good morning everyone, long time no see!!

I’m slowly getting my motivation back, life’s been pretty hectic with one thing and another.

I’ve just relisted all of my shop and thought I’d pop in and show you this aceo again

Beautiful rose Margaret.
Stunning landscape Max.
Hazel the poppies are beautiful as always.

Great to see you again Maria, lovely flower, we’ve got a floral theme going on today :smile:

Good morning, sunny here too :smile:

Lovely work everyone, I especially like Max’s ink painting, and Margaret your rose goes really well with that frame.

Welcome back Maria!

Here’s the first of 2 acrylic ink paintings I did last night, this one’s an ACEO.

The other one, a postcard sized box canvas, isn’t quite finished yet, hopefully I’ll get some time today.

I didn’t know what brusho was so I Googled it and you are right Margaret it looks like a lot of fun … who has had a go at this then ?

Also @StephanieGuy Stephie, I Goggled the pen you suggested and I bought recently, I have ordered a sketch pad today to have more of play with this when I’m away from my studio but need a creative fix and I’ve got a water pen coming too … I digress … I Google the pen name and “sketch” and your wonderful artworks are all over the images :smile: even my own sketch of yours of the charity shop came up in the first couple worldwide so well done :slight_smile:

(Margaret Jackson) #16

I’ve not used it, not sure I’ll have a go, seems a bit too random for me. I’m very interested in what Stephie can do with it though. Basically you sprinkle some of it on the paper, spray water on it and a masterpiece develops. Not totally convinced it’s proper painting yet!lol

(Hazel Rayfield) #17

Yes Margaret I know what you mean but looks like an interesting effect, I watched a couple of people on YouTube doing all sorts of pretty things with it, spraying on water, and like magic these colours appear :slight_smile:

I was intrigued by it, also watch some ink and wash videos too. I’m going to play with my pen more but that’s just so I can doodle and remind myself what I want to try in wax :slight_smile:

(Tessa Spanton) #18

I do like Brusho but several of the colours are not very lightfast so I use it mainly for cards. I am doing another series of colour fastness tests and comparing it with FW inks and W&N watercolours.

(Stephanie Guy) #19

Using Brusho is a lot like using watercolours the Jean Haines way. …create a background, planning for what you want to achieve and then build up using negative painting techniques. Bleach works well on some colours. I will be doing light tests too. Meanwhile I advise keeping it out of the sun.

Lucky you Margaret seeing Judith demonstrate!

Wow Hazel that’s so exciting! Fame at last?? Lol

Am commenting on my phone so apols if I’ve missed anything / anyone.

(Margaret Jackson) #20

Morning all, while I think about it, I messaged Trevor to find out if everything is OK and he said he’s moved on to another project and shut his shop here as it wasn’t paying. Sad really, but obviously I wish him well with whatever he’s doing now.

Have a great day all! :smile:
