Demonstration by John Harrison

The Halifax Art Society had John Harrison as their Friday meeting demonstrator on the 25th May. Most of the members had been to one of John’s demonstrations before and looked forward to meeting him again.

As usual John had lots of interesting art stories to tell as he painted his chosen subject: ‘Appletreewick in Line and Wash’. John, a very skilled draughtsman, drew in two houses on the opposite sides of a small street. He then proceeded to add limited colour, concentrating on the shade that the houses made. The finished painting was admired by all members, and we look forward to putting into practice all he had taught us at our next meeting.

On the 8th June Chris Leaper is scheduled for ‘Demonstration & Workshop creating Islamic Geometric Patterns’.
