Art class

I belong to a council artist group and go to class one day a week with an inspiring teacher Ron Reynolds. He has the most remarkable recall for paintings and can refer to a Mondrian or de Stael in a breath and can go to his resource immediately should he want you to see something,it was his suggestion to try the following. I love stitiching and I love painting so he suggested I try a new way to incorporate my stitched pieces with a painting. I have done it previously as in my earlier blog Now I have no pretensions about my painting but copying Matisse gives you a remarkable insight into colour and relationships, even though I use only acrylics. These pantings are in the early stages but I am enjoying it. It is interesting to see the stages in photos.

I just have to thank Jo again, she is at the end of the phone to help me with the vicissitudes of this medium....everyone should have a Jo!
