The Friday meeting of the Halifax Art Society had Paul Talbot- Greaves as their demonstrator. We are lucky to have Paul as our president and all the members know what a privilege it is to watch him paint.
Paul chose an attractive view of Cragg Vale in autumn as his subject. The scene was taken from one of his photos that he had digitally enhanced. Paul blocked in thin washes of colour, using acrylic paint on watercolour paper on which he had roughly sketched the scene.
All the painting was done with a very limited palette and flat brushes, ranging from two inches to very fine ones. Even though parts of the painting were in very dark paint, the end result was of a truly vibrant and colourful painting, which was much admired by all.
On the 2nd of February a working session will follow: ‘Landscape in any Medium’.
