Winter wonderland

The Halifax Art Society’s Friday meeting had Jane Austin as their demonstrator. The title of her demonstration was ‘A Winter Scene in Watercolour’.

The chosen scene was of the Austrian town Zell-am-See. Jane is very gifted at using tools other than the usual artist’s brush. Twigs, feathers, cocktail sticks, candles and chalk all created magic in her hands. Jane gave us a non-stop commentary on how and why she was using each of these tools. The end painting was wonderful and we all look forward to putting Jane’s advice and tips into practice at our next meeting.
