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.

15th June 2015 Chris Tkacz, Oils/Landscape

15th June 2015 Chris Tkacz, Oils/Landscape

At our meeting on June 15th Chris Tkacs from Derbyshire demonstrated the techniques and processes he uses in creating abstract landscapes in oils. He recommended using good quality oil paint for a better result.

Chris brought a painting he had started by painting over an ‘under painting’ of reflections of trees in water using white oil primer paint mixed with a medium to give a bit of a ‘glossy feel’ – he explained that his inspiration came from sketches he makes while out and about.

Next came colour mixing – he explained the importance of mixing a palette of colours that relate on the canvas.

Chris talked us through his thought processes as he painted and the decisions he was making about what worked best on his painting as it emerged.

The result – although not intended as a finished piece on the night – was very interesting and caused a lot of discussion amongst members. We look forward to receiving a digital copy of the final painting from Chris at some point.

Some of his finished paintings are shown below. These have been framed at his gallery and framing business below:

DAC member Hans Schild was invited to add a splash of colour to the painting at the close of the demonstration following  a Q & A session – here he is doing his ‘Mr Turner’ impression by adding a red triangle!
