View Full Version : light, pastels v acrylics, and style

11-07-2016, 04:13 AM
I have just written a new blog post, answering a number of questions put to me about STYLE, about the differences between PASTELS AND ACRYLICS, and how to achieve a sense of LIGHT in a picture.

If any of these issue interest you, do take a look BY CLICKING HERE (http://http://jackiesimmondsartyfacts.blogspot.co.uk/2016/11/i-love-light-how-did-you-get-that.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed:+JackieSimmondsArtyfacts+(jackie+simmonds+artyfacts))

Thanks Jackie, will read over lunch break :)
Noticed that I needed to add a ":" to the URL for it to work for me.

Goodness, Suzy, I am amazed! I thought that book would have disappeared from people's minds by now, superceded by other newer books.

I am glad you still enjoy it.

And thanks for the comment. I do get a bit concerned sometimes when a post here goes dead after I comment...I wonder if perhaps I stun people into silence! Or perhaps annoy them so much they don't want to respond! At least with a blog post, people either like to read blogs, or not.

Thanks Jackie - didn't realize you had a site - just took a quick look, gonna be spending some time there - your paintings are stunning - thank you! :)

Thank YOU CaliAnn. The website is a little out of date now, I am a bit lazy about posting new work...but then, I have not done lots of painting since we moved house, instead I have been spreading my wings in other directions!

My newest painting is in the blog post. There are quite a lot of "teaching" posts on the blog, you may find some of interest.
