Batik demonstration by Loraine Walker

Batik demonstration by Loraine Walker

Monday 15th May 2017

MANY THANKS TO LORAINE WALKER for a very interesting and entertaining demonstration of Batik on Paper at the DAC meeting yesterday evening. Loraine builds up her beautiful designs in layers of hot wax lines and washes of dye – starting with the lightest colours. Because each layer has to dry before starting on the next Loraine, in true Blue Peter style, produced several that she had “made earlier”! If you would like to see more of Loraine’s work do have a look at her website www.lorainewalker.co.uk

Anthony Barrow Demonstration night

Anthony Barrow Demonstration night

Another successful meeting!

This month’s Art Club Meeting was before a full house when the Artist and Lecturer Anthony Barrow of Wigan gave a fascinating demonstration of portrait painting using a total mix of almost every medium available.

His fun-loving attitude and freedom of style provided a highly entertaining evening for members and guests. A host of different techniques were absorbed by the assembly which will no doubt be seen in their future work.

Cath Inglis Demonstration

Cath Inglis Demonstration

 

ART CLUB PRESIDENT GIVES DEMONSTRATION

At our Driffield Art Club meeting in March 2017  our award winning President, Cath Inglis , gave an inspiring demonstration of her individual technique when painting with soft Pastels.

Those already familiar with Pastels were shown a number of new ways of applying the medium, whilst those new to Pastels were inspired to start using this special medium.

Cath’s painting showed a Hare in full flight in open countryside. She managed to almost complete a great painting in the two hours available.

The next meeting of Driffield Art club is scheduled to take place at 7pm on Tuesday April 18th at the Westgarth Community Centre, Mill Street, Driffield when the internationally recognized artist and lecturer Anthony Barrow will be drawing a portrait using Mixed Media.

Rob Gobel Demonstration night

Rob Gobel Demonstration night

Another interesting evening was enjoyed at the latest Meeting held on Monday 16th January in the Driffield Community Centre, Mill Street.

A demonstration on water based mixed media techniques was given by Rob Gobel, a retired dentist from Kilham,

The demonstration certainly lived up to its title as Rob showed his individual technique of mixing water colours  with pastels, acrylics, inks, pen work and various washes all together in one composition.

Art Club members were intrigued by Rob’s laid back approach to his work and there was plenty of interest in the different techniques which members were encouraged to apply to their own work.

The Chair, Mary Wells, thanked Rob for his talk and announced that the next meeting is scheduled for Monday 20th February at 7 pm when Heather Burton of Spaldington would be returning to further develop her acrylic palette knife paintings, begun at an earlier demonstration  in November.

Visitors are always welcome at any forthcoming meetings.
