Previous Meetings & Activities

Tuesday       23 April 2019   Tony White’s approach is relaxed yet he is passionate about creating emotionally charged impressionistic landscape scenes. “Never be a slave to the reference photo. It is only a guide to your own mark making,” commented Tony. Nothing was labored – “just get it done.”  Tony harmonized his work by using the same colour throughout sections of the work making it “cooler” or “warmer” depending on whether background or foreground areas were being painted. “If runs occur, just embrace them!” He assessed the artwork constantly, pushing and pulling elements throughout the work until he had achieved his desired emotional response to the subject.

Tuesday 26 March 2019
Dee Jackson was courageous enough to do a live demonstration using an audience member as her model. The magic of watercolour was in evidence during Dee’s demonstration as the model’s likeness emerged on the paper. Lost and found edges were apparent. Layers were built up and stronger tones were used to enhance form. Irrespective of the subject being undertaken Dee’s approach is the same. “Let things happen and paint what you see. Just play and see what you can do.”

Tuesday 26 February 2019
Chan Dissanayake chose a scene of boats on the water, which he edited to create a personal statement of mood, light and atmosphere, with a full range of tones and positive and negative shapes. “Failing to plan is planning to fail”, Chan said, showing how he designed his composition, leaving out much of the detail and creating balance. Firstly a tonal study then a colour rough, with the final work done from memory allowing him to work in a loose, spontaneous way. “The best parts of the painting are the things I didn’t paint,” Chan said. “Let the medium work its magic.”

Tuesday 27 November 2018     Jan Latta is committed to raising awareness about the plight of endangered animals. More than that she aims to educate young people about this issue. Consequently to date she has written and self published sixteen books. Jan’s love of wildlife photography was very obvious but her passion to do something positive for these animals is also very apparent. .

TUESDAY 23 October 2018     Jenny Saunders, of Larry Post (a Brookvale business that specializes in the amazing world of fountain pens) showed that the modern day fountain pen allows creative mark making like never before. She recommended the Twsbi as a “good starter pen”. Sailor and Pilot pens are Japanese brands that give very fine marks. Perhaps the most versatile pen was the Sailor Fude pen possessing a bent or backward facing nib! The versatility of the line produced by this art tool was mind blowing. D’Artrimentus is a German ink that was highly recommended because of its quality as well as being pigmented, waterproof and lightfast..

Tuesday 25 September 2018
Pamela Fairburn gave an outstanding mixed media demonstration combining watercolours and oil pastels. Oil pastels act as a resist when applied to the paper and are a wonderful tool for drawing. Sennelier was the preferred brand as they blend so well to the paper surface. Marks were made with varying pressure and with free arm movements, while standing allowed more fluid movement across the paper. Candles, sponges, pastels on the end of sticks were all part of her mark making. When watercolour was applied very gently over the top of the base layer of drawing it enhanced the textural quality of the artwork.

Tuesday 28 August 2018
Pamela Honeyfield demonstrated her special way of conveying ideas and impressions of the landscape through her use of abstraction. Donning headphones allows her to enter another world, such as Led Zepplein at full blast. Dance, music and movement are essential to her mark making, encouraging free marks to be made on the canvas being worked. Her best work happens when she loses herself in her canvas. Not all inputs work as she might hope but the secret is to keep working the canvas until the tonal qualities hum together.

Tuesday 24 July 2018   Ian Thomas shared the influences behind his marks and it became obvious that what appeared abstract mixed media works to the viewer were indeed very personal journeys full of emotional memories. Google maps have often provided a creative impetus for his initial marks! A personal connection to that place has determined its selection. Interesting collage items are incorporated into the surface and often text seeps through the works. Ian’s mark making was infused with a rare freshness and much creativity.
