2nd November 2019
Those that managed to stand up in the 50 mph winds and survived the biblical deluge rather than building an Ark had a splattery time with Mark Fisher and his inimitable and recognisable style
About 20 members enjoyed a workshop with Mark who gave us some very useful guidance on how to create a landscape depicting the South Downs.
The first thing that Mark introduced us to was using an old rag for blending the sky using white and cian blue then moving down to build up the distance by adding a little cadmium yellow to the blue.
The foreground was great fun and Mark had us stippling with our rag to build up a (hay) field and then, oh joy, we used a fir-hedge clipping to 'paint' the hedge.
A most enjoyably immersive two hours was had by all and our thanks goes deservedly to Mark.
Let's get this thing started!
