Paul Riley local Devon artist.
Very interesting artist, keen to pass on tips, painted flat on table.
Had a large collection of brushes which he loved talking about.
He kept a lot of white space in his paintings which made his paintings appear very fresh and clean.
The Magic of Watercolour Flowers is his book- very informative.
A very nice man- we should have him again.
Greg Wellman Demo - 20 January 2017
We had a real treat in store on Friday 20th January when Tiverton based artist Greg Wellman demonstrated his skill with acrylic paint, bringing a wild buffaloall the way from Kenya's Maasai Mara Game Reserve to the Burdett in Newton Abbot with just a few brush strokes.
Greg gave us a very entertaining demo, full of anecdotes and tips, as well as a master-class in wildlife painting..
Dick Smith - Workshop - 12 November
Fabulous Workshop with Dick Smith today.
Dick gave everyone two miniature framed pictures to paint, to start everyone off. The resulting tiny pictures were amazing
and encouraged everyone to go on to bigger works using pallet knife and filler to give texture. The workshop was great fun
and we all got thoroughly ‘painty’. Attached are some photos of results

Just wanted to say what an enjoyable and informative day I and the other four people who attended the workshop have had. As someone who has come to painting in recent years and has used water colour very infrequently with little or no confidence I can say that Cherry's demonstration of 'mixed media' certainly gave a very interesting and for me exciting way of using water colour in a new - Janet Clipsham
I did enjoy Cherry's workshop very much. Learnt lots of new and interesting - Margaret Hadley
