The SASA members’ meeting for September was held on Thursday the 28th, at the Athenaeum, when our members were educated and entertained by Yvonne Ankerman.
Yvonne demonstrated for us, her particular method of painting flowers in oils, using only a palette knife and sosatie stick.
On a ready-painted, coloured acrylic background, she showed us how she quickly and effectively, builds her composition – a field of wild-flowers this time – using a limited colour palette and relatively few strokes of her palette knife.
The very loose and completely “unprecious” composition came together very nicely at the end, with the addition of a few linear marks for extra interest and scratched lines produced by her sosatie stick.
Thank you, Yvonne, for presenting us with a lovely, light-hearted way of expressing ourselves in paint.
