This week the block of art classes finished until May and I thought it would be nice to share a series of pieces from the classes that have been built up over several weeks. It began with the painting below left. Jaap started out with a paint brush but soon worked with a palet knife to create a rich texture on the canvas. The three in this series are 30 x 40cm but his ambition was to work the theme onto a larger canvas (above: 1m x 1.2m). Working with a palet knife allows you to layer the colours on top of and mix them through each other.
