Sue Williams Demonstration at Writtle Art Group

Sue Williams showed consummate ease in completing two paintings in two hours at the latest demonstration at the Writtle Art Group.

The first, a watercolour featuring cows, allowed Sue to show the skills and thinking behind her work. Her mixing of colours on the paper and how she builds up textures, was a delight to see.

The second allowed Sue to compare the attributes of watercolour and acrylic inks and showed how they can result in delightful, vibrant, paintings.

We thank Sue for a wonderful morning.

Graham Webber Oil Demonstration at Writtle Art Group

Graham Webber gave a highly informative and entertaining description of his techniques and beliefs during our latest professional demonstration.  Inevitably with oil paintings we did not reach the "finished" painting stage but the photographs below give an indication of the skills and talents of Graham.

Summer 2017 Tuition

We will have 3 tuition sessions -

Monday 8th of May - Alan Vann - Mountain Scene

This is a painting that gives us the opportunity of practise the techniques of "layering", counterchange, and simplifying paintings. 

Monday 19th June - Alan Vann - Venice Gondola Scene

We look at large washes, reflections in water, as well as creating dark colours.

Monday 10th of July - Pauline Grove

This gives us the opportunity to work with a local artist whose watercolour paintings speak for themselves.  For the first half of the session Pauline will take us through the key techniques that she uses and after an interval we will have an opportunity to put some of her ideas into practice. 

Spring 2017 Exhibition

Glorious Spring weather ensured a very well attended and successful exhibition.  The sunny weather made photographing any painting behind glass impossible but the acrylics and oils give an indication of the quality of work on show.
