January 2017 Meeting Gallery

Stacy Lund Levy
Don’t be afraid of the Darks
January 11 2017

Our demonstrator for the January meeting was Stacy Lund Levy.  Stacy worked as a medical illustrator until she decided that she would like to depict the subjects of her paintings and sculptures without all the extra information contained in the internal organs and structures. Now she paints flowers, portraits, and animals.

For her demo at our meeting, Stacy’s theme was “Don’t Fear the Darks”.  She began by talking about a painting she did of a black cat against a dark tile floor, and explained how she achieved the darks in that painting.  She then demonstrated mixing darks and applying dark shadows to a partially-completed painting of a succulent, bringing out the form of the leaves.
