Colourful greys made with opposite colours and white paint. I’ve never been a massive fan of using paint and traditional painting techniques so wasn’t particularly looking forward to this class. I also don’t like working with still life set ups - this one especially as it was now the third day from working from it. I took a stab at the first 8 paintings and then begun to worry after seeing everyone else’s great takes on painting the still life set up. I then used my lack of patience for painting and anxiety to my advantage and brought out my palette knives. I genuinely attacked my work to produce my next section of work, therefore actually tearing and stabbing the paper. In the end I did quite like some of my last few paintings, which surprised me. I’m after to take this technique further.
