September & October 2018

SEPTEMBER

Wednesday 12th     7-9pm     –     Nephology

What is Nephology? It is the study of clouds.  We all paint clouds in landscapes but if you want them to look more convincing, then practice painting clouds in different ways. From light, fluffy clouds to storm clouds, paint several skies with different cloud formations. John Constable painted clouds and skies all the time in several sketchbooks. Look to the sky or online for your inspiration, and view the gallery at www.cloudappreciationsociety.org

 

Saturday 22nd    10am-3.30pm     –     Mixed Media

So many of us stick to one media in our pictures, so spend the day combining different mediums. Try and use at least 3 different media and let your imagination run free. Our competition last year was a popular day, so on the blog look back to June 2017 for photographs of that mixed media day.

The fee for today is £6

 

OCTOBER

 Wednesday 10th     7-9pm    –    City Skyline

Paint the skyline of your favourite city or town. In daylight or in silhouette, capture the shapes of that skyline. Hopefully by the end of the session we can name the city each other has painted.

Saturday 27th     10am-3.30pm    –   Watercolour workshop with Sue Bradley

Sue has visited us before and is a friendly and encouraging tutor. A few years ago we enjoyed her workshop painting dancing ladies and Venetian masks so we are reprising this workshop as we had such a good day. Bring your watercolours, a straw and lots of puff!

See Sue’s website at www.suebradleyart.co.uk.

The fee for today is £13                  Please book with Susan asap
