Demonstration by Dave White – 9 November 2019

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

An amazing array of paintings were on display
Can’t wait to see the demonstration today
All shapes and sizes, waves sea and sky
A lovely landscape, dogs too let’s find out why.

A canvas 36 by 24 covered in shades of blue
A graduated background is so useful too
For the beach yellow ochre, raw sienna and white
Brushed towards the vanishing point with strokes so light
With a brush replicating Linea perspective
It’s beginning to look so very effective .

For the clouds he used country shapes no less
All suggested by the audience I must confess
A mix of ultra marine and deep cadmium red
With white, ideal colours to use is what he said.

He used lemon yellow on top of hookers green
For the top of the wave an impressive scene
Finally he splattered white paint for the spray
For a realistic impression I would say.

We learned a lot and we had such fun
All of us were involved yes everyone
He is planning a workshop at a future date
Looking forward to that just can’t wait
Brilliant demonstration amazing GREAT.

OUTDOOR PAINTING DAYS 2019

If you have never tried outdoor painting why not make 2019 the year to venture out with your painting/drawing materials. Times are 10am – 4pm with the exception of the Watercress Line when we are meeting at 10.30am for a Safety Talk.  You are welcome to come and go at any time during the day and for most venues will just need a chair or easel, your painting materials and a packed lunch.  If you have any questions please contact either Wendy Horne (01252 792 542) or Noel Kendall (07900 158787)

 MONDAY 19TH AUGUST    –  HARTLEY WINTNEY  VILLAGE  –  If local parking difficult suggest the public Pay & Stay car park in the village. Try village scenes or the pond by the High St or the pond area nearer the golf course.  There is a delightful  farm house and old trees.

Toilets in the village

 WEDNESDAY 11TH SEPTEMBER – ELVETHAM HEATH NATURE RESERVE  –  As there is now a restriction on parking at Morrison’s car park of 2 hours it would be best to park at the Key Centre adjacent to “The Church on the Heath” (where we have held summer exhibitions for the past few years). For those with sat nav the post code is GU51 1BN. Walk diagonally through Morrison’s car park and continue eastwards down the hill to the nature reserve which is just over the next roundabout.

The café at Morrison’s should, by this time, be completed where there are also toilet facilities.

The initial meeting place will be in the vicinity of the pond at 10am but a wide expanse of the reserve is only moments away. 2 picnic tables and benches are in the pond area for those who need them.

Farnham Castle Outdoor Painting

Well done all those who managed to brave the elements and join us on the first outdoor sketching and painting day of 2019 at Farnham Castle.  There were lots of opportunities all around the grounds and also inside the keep for every style of sketching and painting.

The weather was quite reasonable until about lunchtime but deteriorated from then until rain at 2pm onwards at which point most of us left.

As can be seen in the photos 11 artists turned up and produced some very good sketches in watercolour, ink, acrylic and oil – well done to all.

Mellow Farm next Thursday 13th so let’s hope for some decent weather then.
