Finding an abandoned wren’s nest in Lynda Thomas’ allotment shed gave us the inspiration for last Friday’s workshop. Lynne Hickin and Lynda showed examples of traditional paintings and more contemporary images. With spring in the air we worked enthusiastically and tried different media.
On the 22nd March Mark Burgum will lead a workshop ”Drawing Trees’.
Last Friday our costume model, Julie, was in flapper mode and helped to make it a memorable session. Many members came to All Saints Parish Hall in Godfrey Road, Skircoat Green at 10:30 to create a portrait in any medium.
On the 8th March, Charles Kelly will give a demonstration ‘Birds in Watercolour’, wet in wet.
Last Friday morning’s workshop was great fun for members of the Halifax Art Society. Led by Matthew Evans, we used rollers and sponges to add acrylic paint to lining paper. The results were very impressive! (We have more pictures on our Facebook page).
We can recommend Matthew as a tutor, who is featured in the Leisure Painter magazine.
