Vietnam: Hoi An at night

Chris Forsey entertained us at the Art Club last week. He showed us how he would paint a night time scene using mixed media (acrylics, inks and oil pastels). He is very engaging and a very talented local artist, who is always looking to add extra life to his work.

This week we spent the session trying to work on a painting using his techniques. I chose a scene from our Vietnam trip, Hoi An, a very picturesque town famous for its lantern festival and tailors. I’ve not used mixed media before but the effect is very striking.
