Landscape workshop

On Friday 21st June, members of the Halifax Art Society met at ‘All Saints Parish Hall’ in Skircoat Green at the usual time of 10:30 for a working session ‘Landscape in any Medium’.

The results are amazing and tell of their talents.

The Hall will be closed July 22nd till August 12th for renovations and an alternate programme is published on our website.


Misty morning

Last Friday Mark Burgum demonstrated to the Halifax Art Society how to create a misty effect using graphite with a cloth, before drawing trees with a soft pencil.

After the coffee break we tried out what we had learned earlier. In the end we used a rubber to do ‘negative drawing ‘ for highlights on the snow or the top of walls.

On the 5th April Julia Ogden will lead a workshop ‘Seascape in Acrylics’ and attendees should bring a canvas/board and paints.


Botanical interests

Last Friday’s planned workshop didn’t take place, as Mark Burgum unfortunately had to cancel. HAS member Lynne Hickin ran a workshop in his place, also on the subject of ‘Trees’. It is great to have highly gifted members who can stand in!

Some members also attended a botanical workshop at Lynne and Philip’s home and garden on Saturday. The weather stayed fine, if a little breezy, so some decided to work in the garden while others enjoyed being in the conservatory. Some worked in watercolour, while others used pencil or charcoal.
