Janferie Leighton

I paint mainly in Acrylics & Pastels, but recently have tried water mixable oils, which is quite different, but a lot of fun, so will persevere with that medium.
I underpaint with water colour, before using pastel, which adds an extra dimension to the work.
On a Friday each week, I am part of a Pastel Group,& we paint for about 4 hours, then critique the works, which is very helpful & informative.
The group has organised some excellent workshops with visiting international pastel artists, & such a lot of expertise has been amazing.
I hope I never lose that lovely feeling of anticipation, when I start a new work.
Many paintings have gone overseas, it is nice to know a little bit of NZ is on show far away.
