Robert Dutton Pastel Demo 2016

Robert Dutton gave a chalk pastel demonstration to Farsley Art Club. He used Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper, charcoal and various soft and hard chalk pastels.

2016-05-11 20.12.33

He worked from a photograph of a mill town in a valley. He started by establishing the positions of the elements in the scene using charcoal in loose strokes. He smudged the charcoal in the sky and town area.

Landscapes need planning to achieve a better balance than the source sketches or photographs.

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.

IMG_6829

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..

IMG_6831

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

IMG_6832

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.

IMG_6834

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

Mid tones applied to background
