‘Seascapes and expressive skies’. demo March 2022


For various reasons I was in two minds not to attend this months demonstration, but I’m so glad I did.

Mark’s demo was so interesting and informative. For the full two hours he talked about the work in progress, his use of blue pastel paper, his limited palette,

his colour mixing and the reasons for working in a particular way, especially the way he held his brush.

His sketchbooks were fascinating to look through and showed the range of his work.


With luck he’ll be back.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            







Half way through the evening the sky is already interesting.

Mixing to create to tones needed.


Adding the cloud formation, twisting and turning his brush.





A little magenta added to the clouds and the sands to warm it up and finished for the evening.
