February meeting – acrylics

The first session for 2024 introduced using acrylic paints with local artist Catherine Smedley.

Catherine talked about the introduction of acrylic paints in the 1930s and set a challenge to the group to identify which of a set of pictures she had bought along were painted in acrylics and which were painted in oil. It was not at all easy to tell and I don’t think any of us correctly identified the one oil painting.
