Collage workshop at Corbridge Tuesday 13 June 2017

Workshop at the Corbridge Parish Hall, St Helen’s Street organised by Katy who I had met previously at Rothbury Coquetdale Art Gallery. Ten members attended the workshop which lasted from 10 until  3 with Judith having to leave early so I have no photo of her work.
The work consisted of drawing the image of Staithes and covering the work with a watercolour wash to kill the white of the paper. Collage of tissue paper, dress making patterns and newsprint were added to the painting then the drawing enhanced with black pen work. Subsequent washes of watercolour were added to definite the buildings. Finally, white acrylic was used to bring out the highlights. 
We had two images to work from, one showing the buildings across the footbridge from Cowbar in perspective and the other showing a stylised profile with no perspective of the same view.

Hi Malcolm,

I just found some of your paintings which I like very much and which reminds me of Martin Procter's early work. I read some of your comments on Pinterest which said you had tried acrylics for this type of work and had struggled with it. I am trying to paint in a similar way and also find acrylics difficult and am going to try using both together. Have you tried this? Any other advice or comments on this would be appreciated.
