Landscape in Acrylic by Hashim Akib.
On Tuesday 22nd 2016 Hashim Akib gave a demonstration of his style of painting a landscape using acrylics. Starting with a vibrant purple surface he started by loading a wide brush with many colours and then creating broad bands down the canvas to give a base of the painting.
Working from a photograph he then started to apply colours using, at first, the same wide brush. The image then started to appear. Hashim then chose a smaller brush, at least smaller for him but still much larger than most of the audience would use.
At the end of the demonstration the picture had come together. Hashim has a website showing more of his work. http://www.hashimakib.co.uk
