Marrianne Broome

On Sunday I took a one day workshop in abstracts from Marrianne at Edward's Gardens. I now have a good start on two medium sized abstracts. It was a lovely setting and large room with air conditioning. At lunchtime we were able to roam some of the grounds that were close by the main building where our art room was situated.I learned to carve into the medium to produce grooves to fill for later and to start using analagous colours for the work adding only one contrast colour. Fluid paint works best as it remains open longer for blending. I have a hard time planning to do an abstract with sharp lines or shapes preferring soft blended areas.
