I was with my art group on Thursday and one of the members had been to a work shop by Agata Latek. I hope I have written her name correctly. They painted black and white pastel pictures on brown paper. The image was blocked in and then methylated spirits was introduced on the paper to produce some interesting effects. Then the picture was reworked with detail. Well Janet in my class who had been to the workshop had produced a masterpiece and this inspired me to try something myself. It did not quite go to plan. The metho didn't run the pastel as well on colorfix paper and I was a little disappointed with the results. I am going to attempt again but on different paper.
The image for my painting came from a trip to the city on Sunday where some models were having thir photos taken in wedding clothes presumably to advertise the gowns. I caught these two looking on at the photoshoot from behind.
