Standing watching Ash Taylor – paint the latest amazing Street Mural on West Village over Christmas – we got talking about rendering and modelling her amazing flowers >>> https://www.instagram.com/ashtaylr/ As Offered us to talk with her during our next Picnic and Paint – so we will see how we go and if she is back on the Street at West Village – but we can walk down and see her ‘Art’ regardless – it is stunning!

So – With this thought ………we will explore the concepts of Shadows and Rendering

with a much simpler sized project 😅 to give you practice before you head to the street with your spray-can!!
