Previous Meetings & Activities

Tuesday 22 August 2017
Susie Murphie wanted confident, quick and professional watercolours bursting with light, tone and colour. “Variation is so important to the final work.” She cautioned that “too much detail can deaden a watercolour”  and generously shared practical tips.

 

Tuesday 25 july 2017
Guy Warren’s talk centred around a video produced by his son, Paul Warren for a recent exhibition at the S.H. Ervin gallery titled “ Genesis of a Painter.” It focused on works from Guy’s earlier years and those from the last decades. Ann Cape, well known portrait artist, acted as a facilitator by interviewing Guy. Sharing entertaining stories from his life uncovered fascinating insights into this artist’s overwhelming passion for mark making.

 

 

Tuesday 27 June 2017 Julie Simmons demonstrated a new technique of painting on canvas using watercolour. Light determines what she paints and detail is simplified to capture tone and sharpness. Experimenting with new products and honing new techniques are essential ingredients for keeping her art fresh and alive.

Tuesday 25 April 2017 John Haycraft strongly believes in planning a painting before starting. He may do one or more thumbnail sketches to sort out composition, tonal values and how to achieve a desired effect. This then gives him the freedom to paint interpretively and to set the scene for a painting success.

Tuesday 28 March 2017
Pamela Fairburn demonstrated a still life with ‘attitude’, explaining how the items chosen needed to have some significance for her. Pamela confessed to loving colour, liked being experimental and loves doing lots of different artwork, including mixed media and acrylics. An intuitive experimental approach best describes Pamela’s approach to her artwork.

 


 

Tuesday 28 February 2017 Ann Cape, using a model skull, explained how a good knowledge of the skeletal and muscular structure of the head will help in producing a far more realistic portrait.  Once the artist has established a well drawn base, finding the different planes on the face will establish where to place the lights and darks so as to produce a three-dimensional artwork.

Tuesday  22 November 2016
John Perkins, a multi-award winning artist and currently President of the Royal Art Society, took an ordinary still life subject and produced a magnificent painting.  Stepping back to view the subject, suggesting rather than painting clear outlines, engaging the imagination, these were all part of John’s approach, but more importantly “It’s about having fun”.
