Kusudama flowers

On the 11th October, the Halifax Art Society experienced a workshop led by Catherine Davis. We learned to fold a Kusudama flower from paper, better known to many people as Origami. With such newly acquired skills we feel ready to produce some unusual Christmas decorations.

On the 25th October Philippa Ashworth will lead a ‘Experimental Landscape’ workshop.

Flowers and foliage working session

The Halifax Art Society had another good meeting last week. Many of our members were inspired to have a go at painting flowers in the style of Tracey Krupianka as demonstrated last week. They were able to take super work home. 



On Friday, the 18th October, from 10:30am to 1pm there will be a demonstration by Jane Austin in water colour. Make sure you come on time, as Jane draws usually a good crowd of interested people.

Demonstration by Tracey Krupianka

The Halifax Art Society once again experienced an unforgettable morning. This time with Tracey Krupianka.

She painted some hills in acrylics using a brush, only to change them with a palette knife into mountains with a few strokes. Water got ruffled with waves created with quick movements of a flat brush. When a wonderful Scottish Scene was developed, we were given a further treat: Tracey painted amazing roses and leaves within minutes, just filling the brush with different colours of paint and then twisting the brush. We were all mesmerized!

The 27th will give members a chance to put into practice what we have seen done with palette knives.
