TEDDY HOLLENBECK DEMO
Demonstrator for October meeting was Teddy Hollenbeck. She demonstrated how she paints her backgrounds in acrylic and then finishes them in oils. She uses masonite for the painting surface which she has cut into small sizes. The reason for doing the background in acrylic is that it dries faster than oil. She keeps the background simple....sky, earth, water, mountains and then proceeds with details in oil media.
Using several small pieces to do many paintings is good practice. She likes synthetic brushes on masonite as they are softer than bristle. Teddy uses acrylics as a base on canvas as well, assuring us that the acrylic will not crack. Then she uses oils for blending rather than acrylics. For cleaning up brushes, she likes blue shop-towels which are sturdy and can be washed in the washing machine.
Teddys’ style was soft and simple with a romantic appeal. Her clouds were outstanding! Members enjoyed her presentation.

Comment: Judge Kate Aubrey gave President Mechele a comment about the show and the choices she made for the ribbons. She felt that the creative and artistic skills of the artists’ work on display was way above average and each artist should be proud of his/her exhibit. She felt it a privilege to be asked to judge the show and found it to be a challenge since there were so many excellent paintings. She encourages each and everyone to keep up the good work and continue to enter the shows.
