A demo a day
On each day of the exhibition this year, Club members demonstrated their favourite painting techniques to visitors.
Starting with Ralph, there was a lot of interest in his water-based oil paintings of seascapes.
Dan's 'Class of '18' generated a group of boys and girls,
eager to practice their artistic skills with some live watercolour painting. Here are some of his 'pupils'.
Half way through Exhibition Week, Wendy produced this acrylic landscape from a photograph on Woodbury Common. You can see here on the right, work in progress during the day.
Then on Thursday, Amanda, one of our recently-joined members volunteered to paint a seascape in acrylics.
Not surprisingly, very popular with the Jurassic coastline so close.
For the first time this year there was a section in the show dedicated to portrait painting, so appropriately John's demo featured the subject.
With no model available to sit for him he chose to paint a
self portrait in oils from his image in a mirror, cleverly photographed by a visitor from Exmouth Photo Group, Ian Bateman - count the four images of the 'model' in the picture!
Friday introduced one of this year's award winners, Jacki who demonstrated her very individual expertise, painting, trees. landscapes and flowers in watercolours.
They were much admired by visitors and unsurprisingly there was demand for her work during the show.
Much appreciation and many thanks to all our demonstrators for their time and effort in bringing this exciting innovation to the exhibition and sharing their experience with visitors and members. Both interesting and inspiring.
