DEMONSTRATION BY EDWIN CRIPS 22 MARCH 2018

 

 

Edwin began his talk by stressing the need for good quality materials – canvas, paint and brushes. He then outlined a still life composition using a white watercolour pencil on a canvas which had been pre-painted neutral colour background. He then blocked in the main objects with paint from a “stay wet” palette. The white outline was then removed with a damp cloth.

During the painting Edwin answered questions from the audience and gave tips on achieving symmetry, layering paint, light direction and shading, and underpainting subjects. He explained that paints should be built up in layers. His progress with the picture appeared to be rapid and confident.

After a short break for refreshments Edwin continued with the painting. He said that he had attended a few formal classes which had inspired him to take up painting. He joined Ashford Art Club in 1978 and was generous in saying that he had learned a lot as a result of his membership. He finished the painting by adding a little mouse eating the cheese.

Eileen Lacey thanked Edwin for the demonstration and he was given a warm round of applause and we look forward to his next presentation.
