Oil painting with Andrew

Andrew ran a painting workshop for members working in oils. He asked for members to prepare their boards or canvases with a coloured ground beforehand. He suggested that the paintings be alla prima. An under drawing is usually needed. The oil colour is applied directly to the board, usually in one stroke of the brush in the right place so as not to have to go over it again.

Members’ work in progress at the end of the session.

Portraits with Rob Wareing

Rob Wareing made a return visit to Farsley Art Club to run a demonstration and workshop.

Sue reported: “A successful day painting. Rob as always a brilliant artist passed on his skills to members of Farsley Art Club. He makes it look so easy. The models were excellent. Everyone had a great day and learned lots of techniques to get the likeness and tones. I am sure we will get better with practice.”

Jeremy Taylor oil demonstration 2015

Landscape demonstration in oil paint on board.  The board was covered in a thin coat of Liquin so that the oil paint will spread without added turps or thinners and for quicker drying time.
The board was prepared with a basecoat of burnt umber acrylic so that some could be allowed to show through to brighten and unify the painting.
Jeremy applied the oil directly with small flat nylon brushes in a short multi directional strokes.

Jeremy applied some creamy white dabs on the clouds, soften the edges and then applied a near white with a small pallet knife, then soften those cloud edges.
