Trevor Harwood Demonstration12th February 2020

Yesterday evening we had an interesting demonstration from Trevor Harwood using mixed media.

Trevor started by using 140lb Saunders Waterford paper, unstretched, on approximately two-thirds of the paper he laid an acrylic underpainting and on the remaining third he laid an underpainting of pastel, which he smoothed down with brush and water.

 

The idea of separating the picture as he explained, was to show us the different effects that may be had from each method.

He gradually built up the ‘Spring’ painting by using acrylics and pastel on both parts to achieve quite an effective result.

Thank you for the demonstration Trevor it has given us food for thought.
