"Landscape Impressions in Mixed Media"
by Liz Myhill
President Isabel Copland welcomed Liz Myhill to the club on the 11th February to give a demonstration on the subject of “Landscape Impressions in Mixed Media”. Liz started by talking about the importance of sketching to provide inspiration on which to base paintings.
Having brought sketchbooks along, Liz showed which sketches from an Indian trip had been the starting point for some of her finished paintings.
She then took another sketch of the lighthouse at Ness on the Isle of Lewis as the basis for her demonstration piece. During the first part of the demonstration, Liz showed us how she started with tissue paper and other papers glued onto the surface before working over them with watercolour and acrylic paint. Having had a short tea break to allow the work to dry, Liz then worked into the painting with oil bars, oil and soft pastels and watercolour pencils to bring out the structure of the landscape. It was fascinating to see the lighthouse and it’s surroundings appear as the work progressed.
Vice-President Roderick Gauld rounded the evening off by thanking Liz for an excellent demonstration.
The club’s next demonstration, which is open to the public as well as members, will be on the 16th March when Susan Forsyth will give a demonstration on “Seascape and Coastline using Oils and Palette Knife”.
