Reminder: Monthly Demonstration Meeting 13th February – Phil McKay Urban Landscapes

Reminding everyone of our first meeting for the year!

We are very happy to have talented artist Phil McKay demonstrating Urban Landscapes at our monthly meeting tomorrow 13th February, 7:30 pm at the Stans Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Phil is a Sydney based artist who works in acrylics and dry media. He is an Associate of the Royal Art Society of NSW and a member of the St George and Randwick Art Societies.

Phil has a disciplined, process oriented approach based in drawing and composition.

He utilises his strong observation skills to subtract superfluous detail, relocate objects, identify single colour planes and develop opportunities to introduce complementary colour combinations that result in striking art works.

Phil’s favoured subject matter are the buildings and streetscapes of the urban environment, although trips to rural areas have contributed some significant reference material.

You can see more of Phil’s work here:

Both members and non members are welcome to join us for our meetings to view an inspirational artist at work each month, as well as the opportunity to enjoy networking with like-minded art enthusiasts.

Entry is $5 for MTAS members and visitors (includes supper)

Please remember to park outside the car park due to early closure.

For inquiries phone Deidre or Satya 02 45783 555.

Look forward to seeing you there.
