What a fantastic evening with Angela Gaughan! Angela is renowned for her wildlife paintings and brought copies of her book and some of her paintings to show us.
Angela showed us how she went about creating her paintings using acrylic washes built up in washes over a detailed Inktense drawing.
Even though Angela only had a couple of hours for her demo the result was amazing!
I am sure that those attending the demo learnt many valuable tips about working in acrylic.
To see more of Angela’s work visit her website here.

Come along to the Kidderminster Art Society meeting tonight at Trimpley Hall and help us make origami birds for the Kidderminster Art Festival in August. Should be a relaxed, fun evening!
Review – A fun evening was had by everyone! The origami birds caused a few problems but we made quite a few to add to the flock heading for the Kidderminster Art Festival in August.
Members of Kidderminster Art Society had a very pleasant evening on 18 June at the BBQ evening at Trimpley Village Hall with over 50 people attending. The weather was kind, if a little on the chilly side.
Kidderminster Art Society is celebrating 85 years in existence this year which is quite an achievement. Every member was presented with a beautiful, embossed commemorative sketch book on the night, so if you couldn’t make it, yours is waiting for you. (Contact Jennie for info).
Many thanks go to everyone involved in organising the event!
