Sunday Group update – August

This month we were looking at small birds, specially the work of an artists we had not worked with before – Yu Chunglin (1925-1985). We were suing his fan paintings as examples.

Yu Chunglin

He made wide use of over painting – so, it was necessary to work slowly and carefully allowing each layer to dry before the next one was added. This technique generates a very 3 dimensional effect on the birds.

The results were very pleasing:

Sarah Turner – yellow throated bunting

Virgina Hayes – bunting

Karen Gowlett – swallows

Malcolm Gowlett – sparrows

Marion Dearlove – Hoopoe

Jean Gray – Snow Birds
