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.

Tuesday 26 June 2018
Kobie Bosch enjoys painting still life - bowls, glasses, fruit - the ordinary objects that we see every day - “it is fun to present them in a different way. And the light changes everything.” Kobie uses a limited palette and mixes all her colours from complementaries. She finds a black and white photo is a useful tonal reference when deciding the colour scheme. Her support is divided into one-third squares to help with placement of objects. Shadows break up the negative space. When an object is cut by the image ‘frame’, it suggests there is more outside the picture.

Tuesday 22 May 2018
Yaeli Ohana uses hydrocryl acrylic paints as they are the closest one can get to the texture of oil paint without having to use turps. These paints are made from single pigments. When a flow promotor is added to the paint it smooths it out and gives a richer more saturated mark. Yaeli builds her work in layers, uses imaginative art tools such as twigs, leaves and flowers to capture the elusive abstract mark, and embraces the chance element that comes from not being too tight in her approach to making marks.

Tuesday 24 April 2018   Rosa Fedele is an oil painter, widely known for her portraits and figurative work. Be it portraits, still life or cars, Rosa aims to harness the light by working from dark to light, applying paint so that tonal gradations emerge and hence the form is captured. When doing portraits Rosa takes a zillion photos and then does sketches. She is looking for the essence of that person. For Rosa, painting car and still life art is “like therapy.” “Art is a very joyful thing. It is an expression of happiness.” Enjoying what you do is perhaps the major lesson from this demonstration.
