We were pleased to see such a packed audience for the first monthly demonstration of the year. Jamel Akib created four stunning pastel paintings in such a short time. He demonstrated his masterly skills with confidence and decisiveness.
Jamel very kindly brought along several of his paintings explaining his approach. During the afternoon, we were given several tips to improve our own paintings such as how to use brush stroke size to move the viewer’s eye to the focal point, tips on perspective or the importance of choosing a mid-tone background colour.
