Joining Walton Art group means I now have access to the regular demonstrations and workshops on offer. Tonight Patrick Smith, full time painter and printmaker, came to demonstrate his art. The first half we watched an interesting video of his work in the printing industry and him painting plein-air. This was followed by two demonstrations of his painting technique, mostly using his fingers to manipulate the acrylic paint. We learned a few new techniques including how to make our own gesso.
