A message from Angie Poole:
On the 15th of January there will be a Mystery Prize. Criteria for judging an abstract will be
1) Do you like it?
2) Do you approve of the use of light and shade?
3) Is there any Perspective?
4) Has the artist captured an atmosphere?

There will be a short description of four methods used at the City College Brighton and Hove 
which will help to make that first terrifying mark on paper less painful.
a) Make a Collage of a provided scene noting light and contrast
or b) Looking for the "Good Bit"                                                            
or c) Using a light box to obscure a clear view and provoke the imagination
or d) If you use a palette knife to recreate a provided picture it simply cannot be a photo type copy
Bring tubes of acrylic paint, two pieces of acrylic paper have been provided, I recommend using tape and a board if you have one. I love my stay wet palette but an old saucer will do
