Plein Air Acrylic Painting Techniques with Shirley Peters – Part 2

Shirley started painting in the early seventies. She attended the National Art School in 1972-1974 (studying Art Education and Graphic Design) and pursued a career in graphic design and illustration.

Shirley progressed through parallel careers as an illustrator of children’s books and a graphic designer in the emerging technology of multi-media. Since 2014 Shirley has lived and worked from her studio in Mulgoa.  

Shirley is represented by Gallery ONE88, Katoomba.

In this, Part 2 of her 3-part series, Shirley demonstrates adding detail to a painting out the back door of her studio –  the Australian bush and her dam using plein air techniques in acrylic.  She tackles the tricky reflections in the dam as well as adding detail to the trees in the background.
