Arbroath Art Society have had a busy time at the weekend. On Friday they had an interesting talk and demonstration by Maureen McKiddie entitled ‘Painting on Silk’.

She explained the various types of silks and paints available and techniques. She also displayed some examples of her own work combined with embroidery and quilting and members then had a chance to try their hand at it. On Saturday, there was a workshop on ‘Painting with light and shadow’ led by Kirriemuir artist Jonathon Mitchell. In the morning session the participants produced a tonal drawing of a still life using charcoal and white chalk and in the afternoon reproduced this in paint with an emphasis on light and shade. Our picture shows Jonathon with some of the members during the workshop.
