Cardboard cutouts were the order of the day on Wednesday night as Angus showed us how to turn simple silhouettes into lovely works of art.
We looked at the work of a number of different artists, including Pat Perry and Chris Keegan, who both use simple outlines of objects to create something much more intricate and beautiful. And there was the work of Norwegian artist, Andreas Lie, who combines animal portraits with a glimpse of their habitat.
Angus demonstrated some of his own ideas and set us all to work with stencils of animals and people’s heads. Coloured pencils, pens and paint all helped us bring some colour to our creations as you can see from the pictures.
This week’s class will be based around different ways to use silhouettes in our artwork. Angus will be showing several techniques utilising simple outlines to make something beautiful.
And a wee reminder to bring your bottles for the Thunder in the Glens stall, which is this Saturday. This is an important fundraiser for the group so we need as many prizes as possible!
