Leif Larson from Oshkosh was our October demonstrator.  Leif started out his day by planning a drawing on his ipad before coming to show us how he creates his beautiful artwork. He started out his demonstration by showing us how to use a Plein Air easel. Leif then proceeded to draw his idea on a canvas with a charcoal pencil and when he was finished with his drawing he started to paint using very bright acrylic paint. Leif also gave us a few tips to help make painting a little more enjoyable and affordable. He suggested that we use better quality paint brushes to make the painting process a little easier. Leif uses coated paper plates for his palette and organizes his paints by color before starting a painting.  By the way, Leif painted an invisible man reading a book in a library. How fun and creative is that?!!!!

For our last meeting of the year...November, 2018...we had a critique of member's art work conducted by all of the members present.   Everyone enjoyed the perspective of their peers and it was great fun!
