A FUN AND INFORMATIVE ART COURSE!
Last week I attended a great day course, tutored by Soraya French. She is an artist, that first came to my notice, when I bought her excellent and colourful book, Contemporary Landscapes, a couple of years ago. She produces fantastic vibrant semi-abstract artworks in acrylics and mixed media.
The subject was seascapes using acrylics, textured gels and pastes. Soraya, who can be seen above holding a paint chart, demonstrated by starting her own painting - see top left hand photograph.
