We had a guest artist with us this week, Jim Bickerstaffe guided us through a painting of Robin Hood Bay using acrylic.
After first getting rid of the white of the canvas with a weak raw umber then doing a rough drawing of the headland and horizon with a darker mix. Jim showed us how to do the sky using a mix of cerlium blue, raw umber and white to do the distant clouds then using pure white to create distinct clouds fading at the bottom. The headland was created with Sap green and raw umber stippling. Moving onto the cliff face with raw umber, orange and blues. The darker cliffs were done with mixtures of burnt umber and blue mixed in for the realy darks. The sea was a reflection of all the colours already used and using pure white for the waves of the sea.
Here we can see Jim doing the painting along with member participating.
