Trevor Waugh demonstration -

‘Venice’ in watercolour

23 May 2017

After a frantic drive through Cardiff suburbs to arrive on time (The Curse of the Brynglas tunnels) Trevor gave yet another masterful demonstration to a packed house. The members were entertained, as usual, to an anecdote filled display of direct paint to paper expertise. In just 2 colours, blue and brown, the lagoon, imposing buildings and crowds of people appeared.

Trevor explained the term 'gestalt' in art terms (look it up online, great explanations also!!) and proceeded to demonstrate it. He then demonstrated again in the last ten minutes, showing mark by dancing mark how the many abstract brush strokes link and build to create the whole. Thank you Trevor Waugh for yet another inspiring demo.
