Beneath the decay

The Halifax Art Society came together last Friday to watch Jane Austin, an artist loved by many. She had brought one of her photos taken in Venice at high tide showing beauty where other people just see decay.

Jane came prepared with a fairly detailed pencil drawing of an old building’s doorway and gave lots of hints, tints and advice. When the first layers of paint were dry we looked in amazement how Jane lifted out lines and small areas with a fine wet brush to create another one of her stunning paintings in watercolour.

On the 8th November there will be a ‘Still Life Workshop’ at our usual venue in Skircoat Green, Halifax.
