Forest Landscape in Acrylics – David White
David will be giving a talk and demonstration on using Acrylics to portray the Forest Landscape.
David writes about his Journey As A Professional Artist:
“The last 9 months since Crufts 2016 have been a joyful journey of acrylic experimentation, from researching some real places like the Avon and Meadowlands of Salisbury and constructing a scene, to just using colour to lift one of my familiar places in the Rhinefield enclosure. I guess this was the year I immersed myself in painting and started to really understand how to meet the needs of the people I paint for.”
This month on Thursday October 27th, 7:30pm, at Herne Farm Leisure Centre, Petersfield. £2 for guests.
Katrin is a wool artist and designer who moved to Petersfield two years ago. She will be talking about how her work has evolved through various areas of design, focusing on the processing of wool by hand for use in spinning and weaving and the use of dry felting techniques to create pictures.
There will be lots of materials, sketchbooks and examples to share with those who want to have a go at trying needle felting techniques.
Thursday 29th September at Herne Farm Leisure Centre, Moggs Mead, Petersfield, GU31 4PY, from 7.30-9.30pm.
There has been a change to the PACS programme this month. Katrin Eagle has moved to the October meeting (27th) and Bill Pullen has moved to the September Meeting (29th).
Bill will talk (with illustrations) about abstract painting and its development over the last 50 years or so. Beginning with Minimalism, he will talk about subsequent evolutions and approaches, with particular reference to American & British painters such as Twombly, Stella, Hodgkin, and Davenport. Concluding with a consideration of where abstract painting is now, (with, for example, British painters such as Cecily Brown and Christopher Lebrun), there will also be thoughts about the unique value of making paintings, with some ideas about what we mean by “abstraction”.
This promises to be a great evening so do come along and bring your friends. Members free, non members a small contribution of £2 entry fee.
This time next week the first of this winter’s life drawing sessions will have started!

There are still some spaces in each group but going fast. Single spaces might be available once the term is underway but they are more expensive.
