This week's featured artists are Frank and Martine from the advanced class! The mototcyclists above are from Frank and were painted with acrylic on a canvas measuring 1 x 1.2m. From the beginning the painting conveyed energy and movement. Frank is himself a motorcyclist so he had a good feeling for the subject. It's impressive to see them on a canvas of this size!
Martine made this oil painting of two sheep. She cleverly set it up by painting the whole canvas with red, a kind of deep, pinky red. Then, when she covered this with the dark blue/brown/black background, the warmth of the red still showed through. The striking thing about this painting is of course the contrasts. The horns are well defined against the dark background.
