Monthly Demonstration Meeting 13th June – Hiren Patel – Sydney Street Scene in Oils

In June, we are pleased to welcome Hiren Patel to our monthly meeting for Tuesday, 13th June, 7:30 pm at the Stans Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Hiren will demonstrate a ‘Sydney Street Scene in Oils’.

Born in India and living in Sydney, Hiren Patel studied and worked as an Engineer until he stumble on the Art Gallery of NSW. His interest in art sparked again, which was buried deep since childhood and started studying art and practicing painting.

Hiren has been exhibiting in Sydney for the last 10 years. He primarily paints urban landscapes which portray the mood, atmosphere and activity of the scene. He chooses to paint with oil paints for their versatility as they can be exploited by using different viscosity and drying times. In fact, their possibilities are endless. His paint methods are based on the 19th and 20th century realists and impressionists. Good design, composition and dramatic light are the most important aspects of his work.

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.
