Nora MacPhail's demo August 11

We picked up a lot of information from Nora MacPhail 's demo last week at our regular meeting. Apart from her demo on watercolour flowers, she shared with us many tips of her painting experience as a self taught artist: from using an eye shadow box converted into a handy palette that she can carry around doing life drawing, to how she sells on line and uses handy boards for setting up painting still life. She follows a few daily painters: Carol Marine, Karin Jurick, Lisa Daria and recommended we try for figure life drawing references. She even did a quick briefing on figure sketching before rounding off an information filled evening.
