Michelle Parsons Demonstration at Writtle Art Group

Michelle Parsons' enthusiasm and professional competence inspired and enthused during the latest demonstration at Writtle Art Group.  A large audience was taken through the creative stages Michelle employs to produce her very popular paintings.  Fresh fish (literally) photographed and edited on the iPad was used to help composition and then identify and enhance colours present.  Before we knew it a quick charcoal sketch and some acrylic paint had produced a typical Michelle Parsons painting.  It looked all so easy.

Thank you Michelle for a very informative and entertaining morning.

Susan Boddy Demonstration at Writtle Art Group

Keeping things simple sounds easy but we know it is easier said than done, but Susan Boddy's well prepared and informative demonstration showed how the use of a limited pallet and using a full range of tones can lead to success.

Susan worked her way through three paintings.  The first used one colour, the second used two colours, and the third used three colours.  The results are below and we thank her for an informative and very enjoyable session with us.

Writtle Art Group Spring 2018 Exhibition

Writtle Art Group held their annual Spring Exhibition in the Village Hall on the weekend before Easter. Fortunately the weather was kind and a steady flow of visitors turned out to view another display of varied and highly talented work. Attendance figures were 271 over the two days, up by more than 50 on last Autumn’s exhibition. A total of 285 paintings were on show, of which 38 were sold to the buying public for an impressive sum of £1,424.

On display for a charity raffle was a rural street scene donated by the Suffolk artist, Reg Siger, who had demonstrated his use of ink and acrylic watercolours to the Writtle Art Group on 26th February. With generous support from the public, a total of £174 was raised from the raffle for Farleigh Hospice. The winning ticket was number 190 with the painting going to a local Writtle resident.

Below are some of the paintings shown at our latest exhibition.

Reg Siger Demonstration 26th February 2018

Reg Siger's visit to Writtle Art Group on the 26th of February focused on how he uses acrylics as watercolours and draws in waterproof ink with a brush rather than a pen.  His extremely interesting and entertaining style of presentation ensured that all attending had a very informative and stimulating time.

Reg painted one of his classical Suffolk street scenes full of character and atmosphere.
