Art day at Ian's studio #3
Wednesday is becoming a ritual painting day at Ian's studio. Today we did still life painting and I was really happy with how the painting in my journal turned out (top photo). The style reminded me of some of my favorite paintings I have done called The Chaotic Kitchen from 2006.
Above is an attempt at an oil painting of flowers in the grass, inspired by flowers I saw growing at Cambridge. I find using oil paint difficult and I am not used to using the medium anymore. I think I prefer acrylics with the fast drying, easy over painting and dry brush effects you can get.
