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.
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
