Two Oil Demos by Award Wining Painter Max Hale
Open to all - Award winning Artist, Writer and Tutor Max Hale will be doing two ART DEMONSTRATIONS IN OILS at the gallery on Sunday 5th October. You can come to either or both. The gallery will be closed to the public making these intimate with a chance to ask questions and watch our friend Max at work.
We can't wait as the last demo was so well received and inspired Karina to work in oils for the first time. If you are looking for inspiration and help with oils then please don't miss this. Coffee and cake too!
10-12.30 AM. Landscape in oils using palette knife
Palette knife is a fascinating tool to use for painting and gives interesting and dramatic results. Join Max whilst he paints a landscape using this method and learn to avoid fiddling with detail and create stunning pieces using the zonal value method. During the sessions there will be plenty of opportunities to ask Max questions or just enjoy watching the paintings come to life.
1.30 - 4.00 PM. Portrait in Oils
Max Hale will demonstrate painting a portrait with Royal Talens Cobra water mixable oils using a live sitter in the gallery. During the three hours he will show and talk through each part of the construction, through blocking in, placing features, mixing skin tones and giving tips on how to gain a likeness in your portraits. Not to be missed if you are interested in portraiture.
A donation of £12 per demo would greatly be appreciated and there will be free coffee and cake. If staying all day then please bring a packed lunch
