by Stephen Yau – May 19, 2021
DWA’s Honorary Director Stephan Yau presented a demo video for us on May 19, 2021.His reference photo is a busy night scene in Hong Kong. As he was not able to attend the zoom meeting, he answered some expected questions, viz.He used 140 lb. cold pressed quarter size (11″x15″) paper. Since it is a night scene, he used more contrast to show the light and dark; he used masking fluid to block the street lights first. The most challenging parts of the painting are: the atmosphere, night mood, the people and perspectives.
