Lots of working on this one in class. Tired when I came home!
I just need to do some minor tweaking of things now: removing all the misket on the umbrellas and working on those areas. Leaving the star of the show - the main red umbrella center stage - until next week in class. Many of the students are doing umbrellas - some doing the same photo Sandy is doing - some doing another version.
And I can't call them primarily umbrellas anymore - because I used about 3 other colors instead of the red, blue, yellow primaries with which I started. So maybe now they are A Rainy Day at Sandy's Studio.
The close-ups show the texture you get with the fluid acrylics - it just happens - and if it doesn't happen naturally, you wait until it's drying and then drop in clean water to blossom out the colors and make it create the texture - so cool!
