We had an excellent attendance from both members and visitors for a return visit from Steve, this time to demonstrate pastel painting.
Steven’s work concerns the effects of light and shade on the landscape, capturing the changing colours and luminosity of the seasons. A constant theme Steven keeps returning to is the last dramatic glimmer of sunlight on the landscape before it disappears.
The rivers and canals of Cheshire have been a constant source of inspiration, the stillness of the water acting as a mirror, reflecting both landscape and the last light of the day.
It was these themes that provided the subject for tonight's demonstration - a view of the Macclesfield canal near the Hovis mill.
