This first demonstration of this year was very well received. Jake Winkle is inspired by light and movement. You can see more information about him and his painting on his website.
Review by Angela Vizard
A huge variety of paintings were on display
I’m looking forward to this, just show me the way
A Highland cow and a pheasant too
Two paintings WOW a lot to do
Masking fluid splatter,scribble and the odd dab.
I think this demonstration will be just fab.
For the background wash he used orange and cobalt
Wetting the paper first is just what you want
Wet into wet for the partridge starting with cobalt blue
Run in lemon yellow,alizarin and Winsor green too
Getting darker as he went along soon the body came into view
For the tail he used violet and again cobalt blue.
The same background wash but leaving the paper white for the cow
So the paper was dry for wet onto wet anyhow
Painting in the direction of the form warm against cool
Holding the brush at the end for expressive brush strokes is the rule
A multicoloured cow began to take shape and amaze us all
You could have heard a pin drop in that hall.
No trace of MUD all the colours were clean and pure
An extremely talented man that’s for sure
“Always accept the marks you make”were his words of wisdom
Come again soon Jake I think your work is awesome.
