This month we hope to inspire you with this wonderful painting by Shirley Charlton (aka Shirlroma) called "Umbrellas, wet street". We thought it was kind of fitting considering all the rain we have been getting on the east coast.
CRITERIA is to use water (liquid) in some way on your page (ink spray, gelatos, paper crumple, watered down paint, make handmade flowers etc). Just tell us how water was applied.
A little about Shirley Charlton ...
Shirley Roma Charlton was born in Malawi Central Africa and is now based in Brisbane, Australia. She is an international professional fine artist and her work has sold all over the world. With many art Exhibitions behind her and having judged many art shows, she loves teaching art. Her inspirational watercolours and soft pastels show a love for seascapes while her figure painting show vibrant rich colours with bold strokes.
Proceeds from her work goes back to Malawi to help a village called Manyowe outside Blantyre. She also teaches art for the unemployed and homeless.
So hope you can play along this month - we'd love to see your creation linked up on the ARTastic blog.
