Enormous Thanks To Our Member Alan Landsburgh
Our members thoroughly enjoyed an evening on 1st October, with our member Alan Landsburgh, for a portraiture evening. Alan started the session with a small demonstration and talk about the placing of facial features. The session then continued with members having a go themselves.
Thank you to Alan also, for orgnaising a model for everyone to use for practice.
A great evening was had by all.
See what we are up to in November where we are running a life drawing evening. With a female model.

Looking forward to our November Life Drawing Session
On 5th November 2018 we are looking forward to our evening with enhancing our skills, or trying our hand at life drawing.
Our Chairman John Bailey will be running the session, with a femal model organised for us.

What a Fantastic Annual and Autumn Exhibition for 2018
Both of our main exhibitions this year have been a roaring success. The society sold 21 paintings, 4 from the browsers and 17 from the boards in the Annual Exhibition, and 19 paintings 8 from the browser and 11 from the boards for the Autumn Exhibition. We also sold over £400 of members cards over the two exhibitions. Thed results for the Annual in June was helped by our exhibition co-inciding with the Annual Peterboough Heritage Festival. We will ensure that it co-incides with this same festival next year.
The Annual Exhibition also saw a record number of public votes for their favourite painting. The winner was Stephen Kulczak's wonderful picture of crows painted in oils on board 'City Flyers'. Second place was Simon Anthony's 'The Shambles, York'. Joint Third place was Stephen Kulczak's 'Two for Joy' (two magpies) and Phil Hemsley's 'Winter Sun (Ferry Meadows). Photos of these are below.. .
