SANDRA BURNHAM - ACRYLICS DEMONSTRATION - 19-04-2023
At Wednesday's club session (19-04-2023), club member Sandra Burnham gave an excellent demonstration outlining her current methods for using acrylics inks and collage in order to produce some stunning paintings. The method involves drizzling lines of coloured inks across the canvas and then spray them with a fine water mist to allow the inks to flow and spread, she then teases out sections using a small brush to produce branch like effects, as well as using paper towels to lift darker areas. In the second part of her demonstration she explained how to use collage effects by using patterned materials to represent leaves and foliage, with added refinements using actual plants as stamps in order to imprint their structure onto the canvas. Examples of Sandra's fininshed works are shown below.
