Then the rest of the day flew by with some more painting (the second half of the Lord and Schryver series and are very much still in progress):
Then I tried monoprinting with Golden fluid acrylics on my glass palette (really need to get some more appropriate tools) and I really enjoyed this much more than the previous ones with the Golden Open acrylics. Both are good, I just preferred working with the fluids. I just flooded the colors with water and moved very quickly as the paint dries quite fast. Here are the results:
Then I painted just a little the first two sculptures I made earlier in the week. Probably will do a little more with them but here they are:
(Sorry the second sculpture looks a bit dark in this photo.)
Thus ends the retreat. I was going to add some thoughts to this post sort of to sum up my time but I think I'll either save that for another post or perhaps pepper them into future posts. I want some time to digest everything and I really need to get this posted before the day is over (and almost is!).
