Demonstration evening with Tim Rose Oct 19th 2015

Demonstration evening with Tim Rose Oct 19th 2015

http://driffieldartclub.co.uk/demonstration-evening-with-tim-rose-oct-19th-2015/

Tim Rose gave an excellent demonstration of how to create a watercolour of an architectural street scene with figures. His mixes of colour and tonal values brought the painting to life using techniques such as negative painting behind the figures and blending washes of pinks and yellows, siennas and violets on the roads and buildings and for stronger shadows, adding blues and purples.

The finished work, a street in Sheffield town centre, had depth and interest – the focal point being the group of figures walking in the streets past the tram.

Workshop by John Naylor on Feb 6th 2015 at Nafferton Village Hall

John Naylor demonstrated his particular technique for painting wildlife in soft pastels using a Mallard duck as the subject.

The class of 12 Driffield Art Club Members all had a go at painting the same subject and the resuts can be seen below in the photographs below.

John talked abut his life and background in portrait painting at Butlins as a young man then, in later years, rearing wildlife including birds of prey, hares and other animals in order to paint them in as natural a setting as possible. He finished off the day with a beautiful painting of a pheasant from memory.

Demonstration Evenings at Driffield Art Club

Demonstration by Claire West on Jan 19th 2015

image flamingo

Claire West treated us to a very entertaining demonstration using acrylic paint and inks on a large canvas set on an easel.

Covering the canvas with many bright colours Claire then laid the canvas on the floor and invited members  of the audience to sprinkle inks onto it. Once dry she put the canvas back on the easel and started over-painting parts

of it with two flamingo bird designs. She showed us how she tackles this kind of abstract work through its various stages, thought processes and actions to get the unique effect which is her trademark.

Claire brought some more recent work along to show the art club members. One example is shown below the picture of Claire painting her flamingos.

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

Oil painting demonstration by Paul Blackwell on Oct 21st 2013

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.
