March Workshop

Landscape in Oils/Acryilcs

Paul Oakley

Paul Oakley is a self-taught artist living and working in Wiltshire. Specialising in oil painting, Paul is predominantly a landscape artist and developed his painting style through studying the works of artists such as Edward Seago and his contemporaries. He enjoys being out in the elements capturing a moment in the landscape as well as painting in his studio - which is a traditional Shepherd's Hut.

April Demonstration

Landscape in Oils

Graham Webber

Graham is a professional artist and is an elected member of The Royal Institute of Oil Painters. His love of landscape oil painting stems from the adaptability and responsiveness of the medium as well as his family connections to the landscape. East Anglian painters such as Edward Seago, Harry Becker and John Constable are constant sources of inspiration. Most of Graham's paintings are influenced by changing atmospheres and appreciation of nature and the landscape itself whether at home in East Anglia or further afield.

2022 Calendar

Please go to the events page to see what the Club has in store for the first three months of 2022. We are holding back a bit beyond March until we know more about where covid will take us next: the hope is that we can restart live demos at Centre 70.

2021 Club Programme

Monthly Painting/Drawing DEMONSTRATIONS (Demos) are held on the third Tuesday of the month. In normal times, these are live presentations, by the artist, in Centre 70. Until this can be resumed, members can join on-line demonstrations using ZOOM.

Untutored Club Evenings. Members who enjoy painting and discussing their work in company can use the facilities provided by Centre 70 on Tuesday evenings (except the third in the month) from 7.00-9.00pm, subject to social distancing and other Covid-19 restrictions.

Tutored all-day Workshops are arranged, usually on a Saturday, with a professional artist, where participants have an opportunity to learn about, and practice, a particular medium or subject. It is hoped to resume this activity in November 2021 (see Programme). Tutored classes are held during the day on Tuesdays in Centre 70. These are on a fee-paying basis with local professional artists who teach in all mediums. 10am-1pm & 2-4.30pm
