The Woods are Alive

On Tuesday 27th Lindsey Cole visited Waterside Art group to give a demonstration.  She  started with a photo and talked about ‘the journey’ to the final finished painting.   Lindsey recommended selecting a view from the photo and then doing a tonal sketch.   The next step is to consider  colour.  Then it is time to start the painting.  To achieve texture for her woodland scene Lindsey used gesso.  As always the audience was able to see the painting progressing on the screen via the camera and projector system.  Everyone enjoyed the evening and greatly admired the painting at the end.  Here is a photo of Lindsey talking about the painting at the end of the evening.  Thank you Lindsey for an excellent demonstration, our final one for 2018.
