What an interesting session we enjoyed by incorporating texture into our paintings. It was good to see so many artists painting together as there were 33 members present.
Some continued their January ‘depth of field’ paintings and added texture to the foreground, by using an impasto technique with palette knives or texture medium.
Others started new paintings and used thick paint, paper, string, feathers, matchsticks, sand, netting, collage, shells, embroidery, tissue paper, pastels, beads and gravel to create texture. Some paintings remained flat, but the artists had applied paint or used pencil in a textural way for animal fur or foliage.
It was a successful day for all the artists, so why not use these techniques again in your next painting?
