On 23rd April we enjoyed an excellent workshop entitled “Finishing Touches” given to us by Julia Trickey. Julia went through what makes a good painting. We did exercises in tonal variation using graphite, colour exploration – mixing paint to match the colour of flowers and composition. This practical workshop was accompanied by a powerpoint presentation and Julia passed on many tips to us.
Wednesday 12th April members were once again at Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens to draw in the garden and were pleased when some visitors joined us. We will be there again on the 10th May.
Our next meeting is on 21st May. The Annual General Meeting of the society will be held in the morning followed by a workshop by Jeni Neale on “Mixing Greens”
