Wed 13 Oct: Max Hale - Abstracts Create Better Artists

Charlbury Art Society 

7.30 Memorial Hall

Max's base has always been drawing, the root of all visual art. Whatever an artist's work, it relies so much on the confidence of the 'seeing' process developed when you can draw. It's the one vital element which enables the visualisation process as the painting process takes on its own identity.

As a tonal painter, the extraordinary paintings of Dutch master Rembrandt inspire and invigorate him by the emotion and strength of each piece.
