These are the pieces of art created by our members during each workshop.


Richard Turner1Richard Turner – Washed in pastels
The workshop with Richard Turner was welcomed by an enthusiastic group of artists. They were keen to try a different approach to pastel painting taking most people out of their comfort zone (that’s what workshops are all about). Richard made a prompt start by distributing fine sandpaper which we were to use for practice work. He started by explaining how the varied pressure of the pastels on the paper changed the intensity of the shade and how colour changed unexpectedly when mixed with another. This was emphazised when he demonstrated water on a damp brush added to the mix. Even Richard didn’t know exactly what to expect. As the morning progressed we were encouraged to experiment as he prompted us to try different colour mixtures, great fun. After a short lunch break, people got down to the serious matter of producing their own masterpiece on the large sheet of paper that Richard also supplied. During the afternoon he constantly moved around the room giving individual advice and encouragement. Despite some sore fingers and art gallery was set up at the end showed a range of subjects and interesting colour ways. The workshop was voted a success and well worth the time spent learning a new approach with pastels, and no doubt will be repeated in many studios over the winter months. We hope to see Richard again. D.J.M

 Joanna Commings Joanna Commings – Figure it out
The fully booked Saturday figure drawing workshop that took place on the 28th of September had a staggered start as one of the booked sitters was unable to attend. Luckily the brother of the young lady model was roused and quickly arrived to take the place. The session began with 3 freehand 10 minute charcoal sketches, firstly with the model moving and then in sitting poses. The aim was to encourage freer approach and to observe body proportions and the drape of clothing. For some, sketching people was more challenging, but we all learned from the exercise. Finally we produced an acrylic painting of one of the sitters. Joanna Commings is an excellent attentive tutor, offering valued advice and praise where due. The two young models did a splendid job maintaining poses. If any members didn’t attend this session watch out for another as you missed an treat. The next workshop on Saturday 12th October is with one of our regular tutors Tony Hogan with pastel pencils and blocks. If you are quick there are a few place available, go on spoil yourself. Enjoy your painting. D.J.M
