Hope to see
big Thank You to our April demonstrator,
Dan Whitely for sharing his inspirations and
his passion for art! He brought two large
unfinished oil paintings to work on and show the
process by which he creates his works. Dan
showed us how he uses a computer to digitally
create an image from multiple photographs, and
then uses a computer screen to paint from since it
gives the light and depth not found in a simple
photograph. His use of bright colors and
layers gives an incredible aura to his paintings.
One of the two was to be entered in the Gates
Mills Art Show later in the week, and after he
returned home from our presentation, he planned to
work late into the night to complete it. A
must see art trip!
