On Thursday evening 5th October 2017, our guest artist known as DJ came along to demonstrate painting night skies in oils. What a great demo it was too! Oil painting is often thought of as being a very slow process, but instead of linseed oil he used ‘Zest-it’, a kinder medium which is unlikely to cause any adverse reaction, especially asthmatics, and has the advantage of quick drying time.
DJ set about painting the night sky with an aurora, stars, snowy mountains and trees, quite an accomplishment in two hours! Many members commented afterwards that the demo has inspired them to revisit oil painting.
Thank you DJ for a lovely evening, we all hope you will come again soon!
