Trees in Oils

On Friday 25 January, the Halifax Art Society enjoyed David Starley’s demonstration of ‘Trees in Oils’. For many it was the first experience with this medium.

It was fascinating to watch David starting with a blank canvas and with one of his own photographs of a wood as inspiration. We learned how to give it the first grounding and to work with different forms and sizes of painting knives. As David stressed, it’s difficult to complete an oil painting in two hours, but we all thought he did a pretty good job.

On the 8th February Matthew Evans will lead a workshop on ‘Roller Painting’ and we were asked to bring an apron. So another new experience is waiting.
