Penny Wilton demonstrated a myriad ways of adding texture to our artwork.
A large group, including several new members, watched Penny create a seascape on mount-board, simply by dragging across unmixed colours with the edge of a palette knife, using the thickness of the acrylic paint to create texture.
After tea, Penny showed us how to use a section of an old painting to create a design for an abstract work, how to add paint by “scrumbling”, stippling and twisting with a large brush in a circular motion, and how to mix and balance colours.
It was a fascinating afternoon. Penny gave us so much information about the best materials to use and the manufacturers she preferred.
Meetings take place in The Woodmead Halls every first and third Tuesday in the month, together with monthly workshops.
Our next meeting will be on November 5 when Stephen Foster demonstrates land and seascapes in acrylic and oil using a palette knife.
Visitors and new members are always very welcome and for further information contact Sheila Stratton on 01297 445464.
