FLUID ACRYLICS WORKSHOP - CINCINNATI ART CLUB
On Saturday I woke up to my husband telling me that it had snowed during the night. (Insert your own expletive here!!!) But, turned out it was just a “light dusting” so, after one more call to check the weather report in Cincinnati, off I went – loaded for bear!!! (And, just for more winter fun – I awoke Sunday to ice on the roads here in the country – which, fortunately, turned into “just wet” the further I drove into the city. As the forecasters would say – “we dodged a bullet”).
The two days went quickly for me, and I had a ball! I already knew 2 of the participants, and others in the group knew each other, so we all quickly became a congenial group. We laughed, we learned, we ate Panera Bread bagels with cream cheese - and we even did some painting!
There were both oil and watercolor painters in the group and they were all very curious about the fluid acrylics. By Sunday afternoon they had learned several techniques to incorporate into their paintings.
All in all, a very pleasant way to spend a weekend – art, food, fun and friends!
If you are interested in an unbiased opinion (!!!) about the workshop, Gaylynn has put up one post on her blog about the workshop and will no doubt post more when she gets her computer up and running.
These two photos were taken into the mirror and you can see the demo paintings. These are some good starts that I’ll be finishing up and posting.
