Corstorphine Art Group
We are very grateful to Leo Du Feu, who kindly agreed to fill in for Tessa Asquith Lamb at the last minute. Leo is a wildlife and landscape artist who lives and works in Burntisland and he agreed to show how he would go about creating a coastal landscape. He started by sharing examples of his work and then produced two paintings in 90 minutes. His work was filmed by an overhead camera and projected onto a large screen for all to see.
Leo has a relaxed and cheery way of interacting with his audience. He explained what he was doing and kept us amused with short stories.
Tip: When in the field, Leo uses offcuts of mounting card that have been primed with gesso.
Thank you Leo.
Examples of Leo's work can be viewed on his website:

There is a lovely story of a woman who posted her painting, thinking that no one would like it. The picture then evolved over a period of time - artists painting pictures of other artists work.
