Work in Progress: Speed-Painting on a Cosmic Scale!
On Saturday, 7th November 2015, Lois Cordelia performed a special speed-acrylics painting demo with an unusual twist - at Tindalls, Colchester. She demonstrated how to paint over an existing image on a canvas, creatively choosing to retain elements of the original, with unexpected and even humorous results. Lois often recommends painting onto an existing colour (as opposed to a blank white canvas), and in this case, she went one step further, in painting over an existing image - of interplanetary space!
This "cosmic canvas" may sound an unlikely starting point for a picture of bustling Trinity Street in the heart of old Colchester, but seen through the eye of creative re-imagination, it added surreal and atmospheric lighting effects, and quirky touches of colour and humour.
Scroll down for a series of photographs, showing work in progress, over a period of about 4 hours. And next time you're at Tindalls, have a look at the painting, hanging in the stairwell! :)
