Terry Chipp demonstration

Demonstration by Terry Chipp of a Venice street in acrylic paint on board.

Terry had already sketched the scene in pencil, pasted over with gesso at varying thicknesses, then gouged the partly hidden lines to reveal them and make shallow grooves and ridges along with added marks to supplement the textures.

Terry wet the gesso surface to aid paint spreading and applied undiluted ultramarine blue and red with kitchen paper to the sky and central area..

Then he applied a brown mixture to the remainder so that all the white was covered.

After wiping off paint with dry kitchen paper to reveal some of the drawing, Terry then revealed more white around the light with wet kitchen paper.

Terry painted dark edges to the bridge and to buildings and some light brown and light yellow to areas in the lamp light.

Bruce Mulcahy seascape in acrylic 2015

Bruce Mulcahy gave a demonstration using artist quality acrylic, applied with a fairly small white nylon brush, on 200lb cold pressed Bockingford watercolour paper with a slightly rough random texture.

Bruce sketched the position of the main shapes from the photograph of boats in Staithes beck. He established the dark areas with a “black” made from cobalt blue and burnt umber.

IMG_6107

Bruce, working from dark to light, painted the similar areas of colour across the scene, creating a unified painting.

IMG_6113

Bruce worked through the painting methodically adding the larger areas, a light cobalt blue sky, grass and light sand.

IMG_6115

In the short time available, Bruce added detail to the houses and painted the boats.

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.

Darker blues dabbed in with narrow brush.

IMG_5959

Dark mountains and terrain added and then Jeremy softened the clouds by dusting with a soft bristle brush, removing hard edges.

IMG_5961

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.
