A very successfull three days were spent at a half term school art room venue, nine artist sought to tackle different methods to expand their artistic vocabulary. Well away from comfort zones and conventional brushes the focus was on the mobility of pigment in mediums, persuading the colour and tone to prescribed fields and with designed bleeds. It was never going to be easy and the journey proved demanding at times. With a steep learning curve connected to great enthusiasm much was achieved and as per plan we shared the personal gains among the group. Along with sweet cakes and buckets of paint the days were just brilliant.
