Demonstration by Phil Biggs

It was a pleasure last Friday morning to welcome artist Phil Biggs to the Halifax Art Society in the All Saints Parish Hall at Skircoat Green. Phil had travelled all the way from Lincolnshire to demonstrate his watercolour technique.

It was mesmerizing to watch how easy it seemed to be for him to create even fog rising in the hills. When Phil added shadows and a dab of darker colour in the foreground we were surprised how it gave distance to the houses in the background.

Winter scene in Watercolour

Our president Paul Talbot-Greaves, associate of the British Watercolour Society, gave a demonstration ‘Winter scene in Watercolour’ on the morning of the 11th of January.

More than 30 people had come to All Saints Parish Hall on Godfrey Road in Skircoat Green to watch and listen. Everyone enjoyed a good experience thanks to our microphone and cameras, giving a good view. Beforehand Paul had drawn in pencil the snowy scene he had photographed in Calderdale.Then he developed his amazing picture in watercolour with interesting comments.

On the 25th January David Starkey will give a ‘Demonstration of Trees in Oils’.

A Christmas Wreath

‘A Christmas Wreath’ was the subject of last Friday’s watercolour demonstration by Jane Austin for the Halifax Art Society. Jane gave many hints and tips on how to obtain different effects including using gold leaf.

It was a good turnout of members for this last session in 2018. At break time we enjoyed Christmas cake and cheese.

A Merry Christmas to all our members and friends, who will remember to join us again on the 4th January at All Saints Parish Hall in Skircoat Green , when Janet Gledhill will lead a morning of ‘Poetry and Cake’.
