The painter of sunflowers

Paul Gauguin titled his portrait of Vincent van Gogh “The Painter of Sunflowers” and it took very little time for members to guess the subject of last Friday’s illustrated talk.

The talk was extremely well researched and presented by Lynne Hickin. None of us knew that one of van Gogh’s paintings was actually lost in a bombing, but luckily photographed just before that disaster.

We always meet at ‘All Saints Parish Hall’, Godfrey Road, Skircoat Green from 10:30am to 1pm on Fridays.

Landscape workshop

Friday’s meeting of the Halifax Art Society was a ‘follow up’ of the previous week’s acrylic demonstration by Paul Talbot-Greaves. Some of the members were new to the use of acrylic and the advice that Paul had offered us was very useful. Some members preferred to do a landscape in their favourite medium. At the end of the meeting there were many pleasing paintings for the members to be proud of.

On the 9th February there will be a ‘Talk & Workshop’ titled ‘Mudlarking and Assemblages’.
