Monthly Demonstration Meeting 11th April – Sally Ryan – Portrait in Oils

sally-ryan-ted-baillieu-portrait-at-the-parliament-victoriaWe are pleased to welcome Sally Ryan to our monthly meeting for Tuesday, 11th April, 7:30 pm at the Stans Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Sally will demonstrate ‘Portrait in Oils’.

Inspired by the work of the Flemish masters (such as Vermeer, Rembrandt and Dou), her style is best described as contemporary realism.

Before portraiture became her primary focus, Sally had worked for a number of years in both the graphic and ceramic arts. These practices laid the foundation for the patterning and detail her art is noted for today. The human subject, though, remained a point of interest throughout her career and after a few years of intensive study at the Julian Ashton Art School (including a Scholarship in 2010), portraiture and figurative art had become her passion.

Sally now works in oils, graphite and charcoal and has been recognised in competitions across Australia and internationally.

As a classically trained realist artist her approach to painting is based on traditional oil techniques and processes. Usually her portraits take months to complete so in a short demonstration she will provide an insight into her process – from preparatory drawing through to oil sketch, including how she arranges her palette.

Monthly Demonstration Meeting 14th March – Dtai S. Hansathit – Urban Sketching in Watercolour

This month, we are pleased to welcome Dtai S. Hansathit to our monthly meeting for Tuesday, 14th March, 7:30 pm at the Stans Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Dtai will demonstrate ‘Urban Sketching in Watercolour’.

Born in Singburi, Thailand. Dtai moved to Australia in 1992 as an international student, and became an Australian citizen in 2000.

Prior to moving to Australia, Dtai was recognized as a young artist in Thailand. His works were acclaimed on several occasions. Just to name a few, in 1989 he represented Thailand as a young sculptor participating in The 1st Asian Youth Sculptors Workshop and Exhibition; and in 1990 he received the Silpa Bhirasri Silver Medal Award.

As an artist, Dtai always carries his small sketchbook and portable watercolour palette with him.

Dtai paints and sketches whenever he can to sustain and sharpen his observation and visual interpretation skills. He loves both ‘plein air’ (on location) and ‘studio’ painting approaches.

He paints what he sees and follows his feelings to capture the mood, atmosphere and essence of his subject across the spectrum of day to day activities; landscape, cityscape, people and sports.
