Ali Cockrean Demonstration working with Acrylics 3.11.10

Ali Cockrean took the place of our advertised Demonstrator Mike Skidmoreand our audience was certainly entertained and inspired by some of Ali's methods of painting with acrylics some of the techniques and tools she used were very suprising and inovative producing some wonderful effects which I am sure will be attempted by some of our members and we look forward to seeing some of there efforts in future exhibitions.
