23 Sept – Stephen Foster, Painting with a palette knife, demonstration.
Stephen has been a professional artist since 1985 and now specialises in semi-abstract landscapes in oil and acrylic. His paintings reside in collections across the world.
He lives in Verwood and runs workshops on a regular basis.
'I love texture especially when used to evoke the archaic and although I have a reasonably well established route into a painting the actual mark making process of its growth is more intuitive than deliberative, more unconscious than conscious.'
He will be doing a demonstration for us on Thursday, showing his interpretation of the reed banks in Christchurch harbour. No need to bring equipment, just watch & ask questions.
