Dave Barden tutor again, he was here last November, and once again encouraged our members to work from personal memories to produce a painting. He brought along two examples of his work both based around his love of music.
My project started by drawing using a black marker a flat view of Staithes bank .
Working on 200 lb Bockingford paper (actually the back of an old failed watercolour.) using coloured tissue paper aligned to the top of the roofs with a random bottom edge. Newsprint was added to some the walls. Watercolour was added to the base and textured using cling film.
Similar process used in the second painting but this time drawn in perspective.
I later sealed the paintings with acrylic medium and and over painted with tube acrylics to complete the paintings.
I used Google's Picasa 3 to create the mounts and frames.
