    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

    26 September 2017   Kevin McKay used his urban landscapes to illustrate how different colours interact within the artwork, The setting can change how we perceive colour. Change the context and the colour is read differently. By using the colour green over areas painted red he was able to change the tone. If the tone was too dark, it could be lightened by wiping off some of the green.

Susie Murphie wanted confident, quick and professional watercolours bursting with light, tone and colour. “Variation is so important to the final work.” She cautioned that “too much detail can deaden a watercolour”  and generously shared practical tips.

 

Tuesday 25 july 2017
Guy Warren’s talk centred around a video produced by his son, Paul Warren for a recent exhibition at the S.H. Ervin gallery titled “ Genesis of a Painter.” It focused on works from Guy’s earlier years and those from the last decades. Ann Cape, well known portrait artist, acted as a facilitator by interviewing Guy. Sharing entertaining stories from his life uncovered fascinating insights into this artist’s overwhelming passion for mark making.

 

 

   Tuesday     27 June 2017   Julie Simmons demonstrated a new technique of painting on canvas using watercolour. Light determines what she paints and detail is simplified to capture tone and sharpness. Experimenting with new products and honing new techniques are essential ingredients for keeping her art fresh and alive.
