Mem­bers en­joy land­scape acrylic demon­stra­tion

Halifax Courier - - Local Life -

Ear­lier this month a large au­di­ence at the Hal­i­fax Art So­ci­ety watched the pres­i­dent Paul Tal­bot-Greaves paint­ing a land­scape in acrylic. He chose a scene above Ox­en­hope. Paul ex­plained that you must use some medium with acrylics like Flow Im­prover or Matt Medium to in­crease the ad­he­sion of the binder in the paint. Layer af­ter layer the paint got thicker, un­til fields, road and a dry-stone wall came to life. The next demon­stra­tion open to the pub­lic is on March 3, when John Has­sall will hold a work­shop ‘Sticks & Stones’.
