Fallen


I have to tell you about Creative Textures which are video online classes and they are all about,well, its all in the name lol, creative textures.... They are video recorded classes for you to do whenever if ever you choose. They are given by 2 wonderful artists who are informative and fun to watch, they also share a lot of secrets on the forum and interact with all who wish to take part. There is no time limit or commitment to these classes. Here is a picture I did after watching several of the videos, they are so inspiring I have several more ready to finish. I had initially painted this various colours of oranges and reds but although they were 'my colours' they were too much for this. I'm finally happy with it, it has been overpainted so many times that I should just varnish it now so I can't put any more layers on it lol. Hope you like it :0)))

Carrie - I thought is was fab first time round, but this is incredible. I love it so much. Love the 'new' horizon, and the burnt umber foreground is so striking, amazing impact. Love it.

I thought this was lovely, then clicked to get a close-up and was so impressed with the amazing texture you have acheived. It was worth all the layering.
