Here are some pictures of the work in progress from our visit from ‘Wise Owl Bird of Prey Rescue’.
Nobody from the Halifax Art Society will forget last Friday’s meeting, as we had ‘Wise Owl Bird of Prey Rescue’ from Huddersfield visiting with several of her birds. We learned about their characters and habits and had two hours to do sketches and pictures. The birds were so tame that we could study their magnificent feathers, beaks and claws as close as we dared to come.
On the 6th March Terry Chipp will give a ‘Demonstration Palimpsest’. The term palimpsest is used to denote an object or a piece of art made or worked upon for one purpose and later reused for another.
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’.
