Acrylic Landscape demonstration

On 17th February we had a demonstration by our society president Paul Talbot-Greaves.

Paul created two different landscapes, one on canvas board and one on acrylic paper. It was interesting to learn about the differences in the techniques he applied to each painting, the affect of using matt medium with acrylic paint, working dark to light, using a test strip to match a colour before applying and much more.

Paul also brought in some of his artwork which was inspiring to see. We are all looking forward to applying what we have learned at next weeks meeting.


Working session in acrylic

Last Friday members of the HAS came together to put into practice what we had learned in the previous week’s session with Tracey Krupianka. Some of us used special brushes laced with two colours. Others tried to dab a background with pieces of a sponge, or used a dry brush to mix colours. Some members preferred to finish other pieces of art. Once again a very enjoyable Friday morning.


Demonstration in Acrylic

On Friday 2nd September, Tracey Krupianka gave us a memorable demonstration in acrylic. It was fascinating to watch her using a sponge to create the background of her picture before she created vertical lines in the middle with a brush to prepare the reflection of the  sunset in a lake. With a dry brush she then mixed the colours with horizontal strokes before she painted flowers and leaves. We learned that you can gather two colours on a specific brush to create stunning effects.
