Woodland scene with William Gall

The Friday meeting of the Halifax Art Society welcomed Mr William Gall as their demonstrator on the 22nd June. His remarkable skill is his use of acrylic paint.

He chose as his subject a woodland scene and worked on a larger than portrait style canvas, which was already prepared with white acrylic. After roughly drawing in trees, he used a pallet knife to cover them with white acrylic and made branch like scratches with the knife. As he worked he gave us lots of advice and his use of a very limited pallet produced some amazing colours.

His finished painting was inspirational and we all admired it greatly. We shall put into practice all that he has taught us at our next meeting.
On the 6th of July Sue Smith will demonstrate ‘Animal Portrait in Pastels’.
