Back to an old favourite this week: coloured pencil.
Long-term members will remember we’ve had lots of lessons on using this medium. They are versatile and produce a range of different effects.
Bring your own images of the Cairngorms and Angus will show us how to create some beautiful landscapes!
Art group restarts on Wednesday February 3, when Angus will be telling us about the school’s new laser cutter. As a wee introductory exercise, he will be showing us how it can be used to make simple coasters for mugs etc.
Simple black and white line drawings with minimal shading work best, as you can see by Angus’s example.
On a different note, as you know, Gordon Crisell was a driving force in the Spey Art Group and was secretary for more than 25 years. He died last August, aged 89.
Gordon’s family has donated his art materials to the group and for some to be sold, with profits to go to club’s funds.
Liz Downie is custodian of the materials and will be bringing them to the first session on Wednesday.
