Keri McGowen - Pastel Demo and Workshop - 27/28 April 2018

On Friday 27 April we were treated to a lively demo by Keri McGowen .

Pastel painting of the Moors was her subject- one dark and moody and another one was daylight on the moors.

 She showed us how to really scrub with the heel of our hand ,the pastels into the surface of the paper ,to build up the many veils of colour she said.

It was an interesting evening.

The workshop on Saturday was attended by 11 members plus Keri . As you can see ,everyone brought All their pastels and pastel pencils . Again the moors was the main subject but you could do your own picture as well.

We covered the floor with a ground sheet as pastel dust can mark the floor. Lots of hands covered with colours.

I am sure everyone was very productive especially Dinah who finished at least 4 pictures.covered with colours.

Rosemary Ensor - Abstract Workshop - 3 Feb 2018

Had a lovely workshop yesterday, with Rosemary Ensor . She talked us through the developmental stages of producing an abstract work of art, and many were so engrossed in their painting that they didn't even pause for lunch. Personally, I was tired out when I got home. Brilliant day was had by all that attended. Thanks to everyone who came, and also to Rosemary, for making it a really worthwhile, intensive day. The following photos were taken by Rosemary, who emailed them to me this morning

Linda Hampson - Colour Pencil Workshop - 20 Jan 2018

Many thanks to Linda Hampson today, for giving us an intensive introduction to making art with coloured pencils. Absolutely fascinating,
and the time flew by. Learned so much about building up layers and also, how to 'do' a dewdrop on flowers!! Which led very tidily into how to 'do' a bird's eye convincingly. What we also learned was, that there is so much more to learn about this neglected and under-appreciated medium. All in all, a very successful workshop. Thanks to all who participated, and well done on the work you all did - we were way outside our comfort zone, but responded well to the challenge.

Paul Reilly Demo - 13th Oct 2017

Jan Newton writes :-

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

17 April - All day workshop of mixed media with Cherry Lyons - Comments from members included :

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
