What's the Acrylic Experiments-group up to?

On Monday afternoons, from 2 - 4.30pm there's always an acrylics class. Either with Pim (Abstract) or with Marina (Experiments) as instructors. Here are a couple of pictures and an explanation or two about how we (rock &) roll in the Acrylic Experiments group!

On the Mondays that Marina teaches her Life Model class (every other week) she also hosts the Acrylic Experiments in the afternoon. It is very calm at the moment, many regulars are on holiday, so if you want to pass by to try for yourself, you are most welcome. You can just pop in or send a mail to . Also write to that address if you'd like to be on the mailing list to receive the 'Weekly' with all the news and announcements about the class.

Last Monday we experimented with ways to apply paint, mediums, texture and materials...

  Three stages of a background by Celina.
OK – the last photo is certainly the best colour-wise, but you see anyway that  she added pink first, and then green. It is super-textured and rich in colour now ready to accept a foreground – which may well be a 'negative space' concept… More later!!

 The 'Making Of' Brenda's abstract on loose linen, first tape and spontaneous brush strokes, then splashes of thick paint for the background. Next time she will add a cartoon-style portrait...

Peter has worked a long time on his abstract with the title  'Everything I do gonna be funky from now on'. Every detail is exactly what he wants it to be.

 Like Peter, Irene also wants to work long on her abstracts. She can't help creating landscapes even if she doesn't mean to - it must be in her genes...

The acrylics atelier with Marina: Bring your own basic materials (canvas, paint, brushes). There will be ideas, general help & input and all kinds of mediums to experiment with. Beginners are welcome. The fee is 15€.
