My Inspiration: My inspiration was my favourite artist Martina Shapiro – I love her bright bold paintings.
Plan: I planned this painting by studying Martina Shapiro’s work very closely.
Chosen Medium and Why: I decided on using mixed media for this painting. I used plaster of Paris to get a bumpy texture on the paper then used a pallet knife and brush with acrylic paint.
Painting Experience: This piece went very well, I didn’t really encounter any problems.
My Achievement: I am especially happy with this painting because I did a few before which were not as strong. I also love the boldness of colour I achieved – it’s very eye catching.
