October Demonstration - A Winter Landscape by Geoff Kersey


October's demonstration at Christchurch hall brought a much anticipated visit from Geoff Kersey. With a nod to the time of year and the shortening days, he chose a winter landscape as his subject.

One of the problems faced with such a subject is the de-saturating effect of aerial perspective and the general whiteness of snow.  This could easily result in a finished picture with very little colour or interest.  Rising masterfully to the challenge, Geoff demonstrated how warm colours can be employed to advance objects and planes and cool colours used to make them recede.

Using a fairly limited palette, Geoff created the vibrant artwork you can see below
