Spotlight - Light in Cinema

The last Spotlight of 2013 takes a look at Light in Cinema, which briefly explores some effective lighting and colour arrangements, techniques which are equally applicable to creating the right mood in your paintings.

Here's the link:

LAS Fringe 2014 Update

A few points were discussed at last Wednesday's Fringe 2014 meeting, with the main points being:

  • There'll be an expanded Art Trail this year, possibly with a registration fee and commission taken to help make the Trail more self-sustaining.
  • The LAS' Art Market will return, with the possibility of portrait sketching taking place alongside the market.
  • We may have a paint jam this year - artists working outdoors on large boards.
  • Starting on Tuesday 3rd December, and every other Tuesday after that, there'll be an informal meeting for anyone who wants to be involved with the Fringe. This will take place at the Sitting Room, just above the Thai Box. I don't have an exact time, but I'd guess from about 7.30pm.

A lot is still up in the air (hence the 'may' and 'possibility'!), but it's beginning to come together. I'll keep you updated as things develop.
