Critique + ATC

Well, the artist who did the critique was very gentle with everyone and kept saying 'oh I really like that' when the paintings weren't good and said things like 'I'd deepen the shadows there and don't make the leaves all one colour of green' -- and they were mostly landscapes and flowers and a couple of portraits so when my abstracts were put up, she didn't say much and didn't say 'oh I really like that' LOL- so not sure just how constructive it all was for ME. But I ate lots of chocolate regardless - and I might add this box of chocolates was given to me at Xmas so I have been good!!!!

Here's another ATC- the important thing about the swap is not a finished ATC but to show the technique used which is 'gesso and magazine images'.Untitled4_2


  1. Ahhh, how can they not love em? I think the trouble with a lot of art groups is there are a lot of dyed-in-the-wool traditional artists, who definitely don't get mixed media. It is something I see a lot, but look on it as our opportunity to educate them, LOL!
    I have seen more understanding and even some experimentation in my local groups, so keep on Evie!
