October 11th

October 11th was a workshop at the Gimli Art Club on Acrylics & Oils given by Melanie Rocan.  We were supposed to illustrate a piece of fabric.  Started with the background in acrylics - blending purples,  reds, whites, etc.  Let it dry over the lunch hour.  After lunch, we were to use oils (water based oils) on top.  I tried to create the fabric pattern - but started using the fan brush and mostly blended all the colours in.  Created a very abstract look - tried to get a picture, but came out too dark - will try another, brighter, time.
