Demonstration by Geoff Kersey at Driffield Art Club

Demonstration by Geoff Kersey at Driffield Art Club

Demonstration by Geoff Kersey on Feb 17th 2014

Geoff, who is from Matlock in Derbyshire, came to do a watercolour demonstration on Monday February 17th at Driffield Art Club.

The hall at the Community Centre at Westgarth on Mill Street in Driffield, where the Driffield Art Club hold their monthly meetings, was packed with members and visitors to watch the demonstration. They were not disappointed as Geoff demonstrated his techniques beginning by explaining which colours he uses and for what purpose. He had chosen to paint a scene from the Derbyshire Peak District in wintertime.

It was a Masterclass in the use of watercolours showing how to create light and atmosphere with good quality watercolours and brushes from the SAA.

Geoff has written many books on watercolour and oil painting and produced several DVDs on the subject.

His website is: www.geoffkersey.co.uk

Demonstration by Paul Blackwell

Demonstration by Paul Blackwell

North Yorkshire Artist Paul Blackwell gave DAC members  a demonstration of oil landscapes on Monday 21st October at DAC’s monthly meeting.

Paul sketched a landscape in charcoal on a canvas in situ at Malham, in the Dales.

He took it back to his study and made some small colour sketches to work out how he wanted to approach the painting.

Although the sketch was quite detailed Paul began the demonstration by rubbing out most of the image with a clean cloth. There was enough of a sketch left on the canvas to guide the painting.

Paul laid various thin layers of oil – mixed with turps – to allow under painting colours to show through.

He explained that normally he would leave the oil to stand for several days to dry.
