First live art event of 2014 and I thought it was about time I dusted off the paintbrushes! I've recently been working on more digital stuff so haven't had time for any acrylic painting. I had a feeling the time spend digitally painting would have a knock on effect to how I paint in acrylic so I was keen to give it a go and put some of the learning into practice. While there's always a pressure for time at these live art event (I painted this in 3 hours) I was pleased with getting full coverage of the board and learning to focus on the major forms rather than fine detail paid off here.
I also managed to sell the piece at the end of the night!
Big thanks to James and The Forum and to the other artist that braved the bad weather. Expect more Sketchy event throughout the year.
