Shirley is a landscape artist. She paints plein-air in the country, using her motorhome to travel from beach to river to mountains (with husband Bob and Honey the dog).
At home she makes ‘slow art’ in her studio by painting large detailed works inspired by her travels.
In this, Part 1 of her 3-part series, Shirley demonstrates blocking in a painting out the back door of her studio – the Australian bush and her dam using plein air acrylic painting techniques, including wet-in-wet techniques to create gorgeous expressive colour that fills up that white in the canvas!
Stay tuned for Part 2 and 3, coming soon.
