Gesso in portrait painting

terry-800x600The Halifax Art Society’s demonstrator last Friday was Terry Chip. All the members were eagerly awaiting Terry’s arrival… However, unfortunately he was delayed for one and a half hours due to horses loose on the motorway. This delay meant that Terry had only one hour left to demonstrate gesso in portrait painting.

He is highly skilled in the use of this medium and gave us many tips and advice on how to use it. Terry managed to finish a dramatic portrait in the short time available.

Our next demonstration open to the public will be the 7th of April at 10:30 am, when Anthony Barrow will demonstrate painting an ‘Industrial Theme’ using charcoal and acrylic glazes.
