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.
