I accepted an invitation from Topsham Art Group to attend a Donna Crawshaw workshop yesterday so on Saturday I spent longer than usual with the ponies so I could take lots of photographs as reference material. The workshop was about animal painting in acrylics and I’m really glad I made the effort. The group was small and very friendly. After giving a demonstration Donna gave lots of individual attention, encouraging, explaining, and suggesting improvements. I made all sorts of discoveries and learnt heaps so I now feel much more confident about getting my paint brushes out and exploring further.
This is the painting I produced yesterday. Donna suggested I could finish it off with pastels. I’ve not tried mixed media in this way before so I might just have a go!
