Inspiring Demonstration By Jerome Hunt
On Monday 16th April 2018 we welcomed local professional artist, Jerome Hunt to our meeting. Jerome gave us a good insight into his background and showed us some wonderful pieces of his work.
He had a lovely still life display set up with a black background, which included a tulip in a glass vase, a lovely red apple and a silver jug. This was to show us how to paint glass, water and reflections.
Jerome told us about a ground he uses to prep his painting board, and also told us that you can use something like the green Swafega to be able to clean brushes, rather than use expensive brush cleaners.
Jerome advocates not using pure white in highlights, but adds a tiny amount of the object colour to tone down the white.
See his finished picture below. See some pictures from this demonstration in our events gallery.
Our next exhibition will be our Annual, at St Johns Church, Cathedral Square, Peterborough. Open from 10am to 4pm. Date 5th to 16th June.
This is always very well attended and lots of pictures are always sold.
This exhibition is open to all of our society members. If you would like to exhibit with us, but are not yet a member, then please get in touch with us on email at email@example.com to let us know and we can forward you a form.
We currently have a small exhibition of a selection of members work, on various walls in the foyer and restaurant of the Key Theatre, Embankment Road, Peterborough. Please do go and take a look. Especially if you are going along to book seats or to visit the restaurant before a show.
Looking forward to our May Demonstration with Popular Artist Mo Teeuw
On 14th May 2018 we are looking forward to our demonstration by very popular professional artist, Mo Teeuw.
Mo has been with us a number of times now and is a popular request from members. She will be demonstrating one of her popular oil landscapes. We understand she has just come back from a foreigh holiday, so will have lots of inspiration for us.
See her website www.moteeuw.co.uk to view her work.
For details of where and when we meet for this and all future eveings, please take a look at our programmes page.

Painting Days Out
We often organise painting days out for members during the year. 2017 saw us going to many venues, such as Elton Hall, Thorpe Hall, Nene Valley Railway Station, Peterborugh Catherdral Square amongst a couple of others.
We will be once again organising such days during 2018, and are looking for ideas from members as to where else they would like to go to. Even asking if any member wishes to organise a day out.
We intend to go back to Thorpe Hall and Nene Valley Railways, as they were extremely enjoyable and have already been requested by some members. But where else would inspire you?
If you are interested in joining us there, but are not a member, then why not join Peterborough Art Society. You can contact us using our contact form, requesting a member application or you could come along to one of our meetings at St Marks Church Hall and join then. Please see our programme for details of when.
