Members draw and paint in a variety of media: oils, watercolour, pastels, acrylic etc. Subjects (such as still life, portraits and figure drawing for example) may be set or left to individuals. On some summer evenings we work outdoors.
Work, finished or in progress, is reviewed by an experienced club member, comments are invited and a lively discussion often ensues. The aim is to produce better pictures by pointing out, in a helpful way, areas for improvement (and we all have those!), such as composition, tonal balance and technique.
Professional artists demonstrate in a variety of media, ususally completing a picture in the evening - nice just to sit and watch someone else working!
Non-members are welcome to attend for a admission charge of £3. Members will be asked to contribute £2.
The images on this page are a few examples of what we do.
