Peer to Peer Exercise and Project

We tried a new approach to our weekly "gallery" group critique sessions which are led by the tutor. This week we worked in pairs, each choosing and masking a detail of our partners picture and analysing their picture before feeding back to them in one to one critiques. At the end of the exercise we then shared our critiques to the whole group, with the tutor adding comments. 
The first three photos below show some of us in our pairs. The rest of the photos show some of us reporting our critiques to the whole group. 
We are now using the details suggested by our critical partner as the subject for our next painting project.

Looking at clouds: resources

Last time we looked at how to deconstruct skies and water. Some of the group seem to have an interest in clouds. On the right of this page under RESOURCES you will see "CLOUDS". This gives you links to two useful websites that have images 
which may be of interest for your future paintings.

Bob's scumble acrylic landscape (after Sisley)

Very nice scumble technique in this study of a Sisley landscape. 
The tonal relationships between the colours is sensitively 
achieved to produce warmth and richness.

Peter's scumble acrylic coast study

Wonderful rich, dark and warm palette. A good change for 
Peter, strong development from previous palettes.

Terry's scumble underpainting

Very nice use of scumble technique in this underpainting stage. 
Brave (and good) choice of ground colour painted first (strong blue)

Dave's seascape in acrylic

Beautiful warm light on the whitewashed tower, 
clever use of white/yellow and scumble.
