Fruit and veg

The ‘Fruit and Veg’ Workshop at the Friday meeting of the Halifax Art Society was run by Carol Pope.

As well as providing some beautiful fruit and vegetables for us to draw and paint, Carol showed us some lovely examples of her own work to inspire us.

Some excellent work was done, in many different styles, and we were, of course, able to eat the subjects of our artwork afterwards!

Big sky and sea

Big sky and sea was the subject in the Halifax Art Society last Friday for an acrylic workshop, led by Hebden Bridge artist Julia Ogden. Members tackled the subject with gusto!

On the 26th April there will be a workshop ‘Roses in Bloom’, led by Janet Gledhill.

Included in our new exhibition in the Tourist Information centre in Hebden Bridge is the opportunity to buy a sunflower canvas for £20. The money raised will go to support the Macmillan Unit at the Calderdale Royal Hospital. Can you help us reach our goal of £1000?

Misty morning

Last Friday Mark Burgum demonstrated to the Halifax Art Society how to create a misty effect using graphite with a cloth, before drawing trees with a soft pencil.

After the coffee break we tried out what we had learned earlier. In the end we used a rubber to do ‘negative drawing ‘ for highlights on the snow or the top of walls.

On the 5th April Julia Ogden will lead a workshop ‘Seascape in Acrylics’ and attendees should bring a canvas/board and paints.
