    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.

    27 February 2018   Patrick Carroll clearly demonstrated that all artists need to get a little more objectivity into their work.  “Exploit artistic license”.  Patrick explained that in his landscape demonstration he was seeing the “shapes” in the landscape rather than the rocks and trees.  Whilst objectivity is the ultimate goal, a certain degree of subjectivity is also required because passion is a vital ingredient in making art. The challenge for Patrick was to capture a level of abstraction in his work – not being a slave to recreating exactly what was in front of him, but importantly keep tone and composition in mind.   .

Tuesday 28 November 2017
Carla, a representative from Winsor and Newton gave a valuable insight into the range of products available that are capable of producing a vast array of painterly effects. We tested the same colours on Arches 300gsm hot pressed, cold pressed and rough paper to see the effect of the different surfaces. Next all the different gels available in the Liquitex range were used with acrylic paint. Such experimentation is great for the creative process.

Tuesday 24 October 2017
Paul McCarthy gave the following advice:  all paintings, in every medium, work for the same reason - the tonal design.  You have three tones – dark, medium and light – and the proportion of the whole surface allotted to each must be different.  One must be smaller than the others.  Colour should be treated the same – either warm or cool colours should predominate
