Stewart discussed the finer points of Framing and gave a thought provoking session looking at the relationship to the painting to be framed, the mount and the frame/moulding.
He also showed the audience a number of framed paintings and invited comments and critique as to what the audience liked or disliked regarding the finished article.
Needless to say there were mixed comments which tended to support Stewart's opening statement "there are no rules"
At tonight's meeting John gave us an interesting and entertaining demonstration of line and wash as well as bringing along his sketch books for us to look at.
Many thanks to John for a very enjoyable evening
Two artists, two halves, one final painting – it’s that simple!
You paint half, and pass it on to a friend to complete the other half. Bingo – you’ve got a final painting that’s double the creativity and double the fun!
THis was the challenge set by the SAA Postcard Partners competition and some of the entries from our mebers are shown above.
