Our annual exhibition at Kidderminster Library opened on 2nd November until 30th November. A wide variety of styles, subject matter and media is on display. The exhibition is free to the general public and most paintings will be available to purchase via the library staff.
Well that was a fun evening! Some great drawings and paintings based on some of the reflective items everyone brought in. Good work!
A very special thank you to Clive Betts for his informative presentation on reflections, I think we all learnt something!
Our exhibition in the fabulous Bishops Palace at Hartlebury Castle during September was a great success. With over 1000 visitors during the Open Heritage Weekend, we had good exposure and we sold a couple of paintings as well! We hope to get asked back again next year.
Our next meeting will be on 12th September at Trimpley Village Hall and I am pleased to say we will have a life model. There will be a small charge of £3 for members and £5 for non members for this event. Bring along your charcoal, pastels or chalks and a support or hard-backed pad or easel. 7.15 pm prompt start.
This month our theme is ‘portraits’. We kick off on Thursday 8th with a ‘face to face’ session at Trimpley Village Hall doing quick sketches of each other. Bring your pencils, charcoal and paints for a fun evening.
Thank you everyone who came to our appraisal evening and brought in their sketches and paintings of portraits. Some fantastic work! Lovely to see how everyone tackled the subject.
Everyone has been really productive this month and there were lots of amazing paintings and sketches to share and enjoy. The theme of Urban Sketching proved a popular subject, especially when complimented with a trip out and a social get together afterwards. Thank you everyone who attended and helped out at the meeting last night.
This evening we will be meeting at Weavers Wharf carpark for our urban sketching challenge. The carpark is free after 6.30 so see you there! PS: Don’t forget to bring your paintings for Foleys exhibition.
A great evening sketching finished off with a get together for a drink and to share our efforts. A heavy shower of rain drove us there!
What a talented bunch! Some great drawings from this month’s theme on ‘Vehicles’ and fab drawings from the outdoor session last week.
What a great evening at member Sandra’s house sketching motorbikes and variety of jeeps and other vehicles! It was great to get outside and enjoy the garden and the lovely weather. Thank you Sandra for the invitation, the tea, coffee and biscuits; everyone really enjoyed it!
Huge thanks to our guest artist Graham Wilson for his demo this evening. Loads of tips and information which went down particularly well with our newer members. I was so engrossed in the humorous quips and chatter that I completely forgot to take any photos ! So below is a link to a painting of a train on his website. Thanks too to everyone who helped on the night; putting tables and chairs out (and away), making tea and coffee and washing up, setting up and operating the camera and manning the door etc. https://grahamwilsonart.weebly.com/gallery-watercolours.html#
