A Winter's Tale: Phil Creek
With all the recent snow and maybe more still to come, it was appropriate that
the March Club talk and demo had a wintry theme.
Over 70 fascinated members watched Phil Creek create a snowy landscape painting using both acrylics and water based oils.
With a base of a prepared Ampersand board, he made use of flat, 3cm brushes to apply first of all the sky, introduce some foreground and then the first impressions of skeletal trees.
He followed this with water based oils applying more detail and richer colours using similar brushes and a small rigger for more intricate work.
The end result, as you can see at the top of this page, is a beautifully rendered landscape, full of atmosphere and very much of the moment. A really great morning for members and an inspiration for the Club's landscape painters.
