Notable plein air painter Kevin Feary gives live demo at DeWitt Recreation Area, hosted by Batavia Society of Artists
Did you ever want to add some bushes or cattails to a painting but thought what you were looking at was just too busy or complicated?
Well it can be done simply and it doesn't have to be daunting.
The Batavia Society of Artists is hosting artist Kevin Feary (top photo) outside at DeWitt Recreation Area on Cedar Street in the City of Batavia at 6 p.m. on Tuesday June 8th.
He is demonstrating methods for plein-air painting -- all different kinds of landscape elements -- bushes, reeds, a pond, and any general scrub you may see in a field or hedgerow -- using simple application methods and color mixtures.
All types of brushes, pallet knives, paper towels, your fingers or whatever tools are at hand can be used.
The live demo will be in Pavilion #3, the smallest one. Please bring a chair in case Kevin wants to get closer to the pond!
There is a charge of $5 for nonmembers. See our facebook.com/bataviasocietyofartists for more info.
