A demonstration of how to capture colour and light with pastels was the focus of the Otter Vale Art Society’s meeting on Friday, October 4.
The visiting artist was SouthWest Arts academician Colin Allbrook, who created a picture of the inside of a farm outbuilding.
One of his favourite subjects is scenes on a farm, particularly working barns.
Working from a sketch he began with a carefully detailed drawing and then built up layer upon layer of subtly graded colour.
Given more time, Colin would have added some darker tones, but he had already captured the mood and light in the lambing shed.

Instead of the usual art demonstration, the teacher and professor Anthony Slinn will give a theatrical lecture on Van Gogh.
