Demonstration by Lee Wright

Still Life in Oil

19 November 2019

On a wet and windy night, further hampered by heavy traffic Lee gave us the most wonderful demonstration. It was refreshing to see him set up his composition of pears, and hear how he takes time to ensure that it will work well.

He explained how he spends so much of the early stages making sure the shapes and tones are correct and only dipping in to colour later in the painting.....and holding off from using white for as long as possible.

It was a very interesting,entertaining and informative meeting. The Society extends a heartfelt thank you to Lee for stepping in at the 9th hour, and I'm sure we'll see you again. Lee will finish the painting in his studio and will share the photos with us in a few weeks.
