Hello Elis. How is it that images make us gasp?! I'd love you to see the actual piece.

Hi Angela. I was experimenting using acrylics like watercolours in places. (The Mary's Window series sort of painted itself.)

this is just beautiful, Elizabeth.

[I keep wanting to call you Lizzie ... when I was little one of my aunts and some cousins nicknamed me 'Lizzie Dripping'. I think it was after a character in a children's book ... a naughty girl, of course!]

I am interested to see that you use acrylics like watercolours for glazing ... it is very effective in the right places, isn't it?

Hi Lesly. I enjoy working in acrylics as they are so immediate. I also work a little in oils but now am finding that I'm always trying to work out how I can get the same effects as acrylics.

I answer also to Lizzie!
