Wonderful Demonstration by Sonia Bacchus
A demonstration by Sonia Bacchus on Monday 2nd July was very well received by members and visitors alike. She had chosen to paint a picture of her own lovely cat. Sonia showed us how she used both watercolour and inks to create a sense of depth and texture.
Sonia uses brushes to apply her inks, not pens, which enabled the ink to run in places, but also to provide precise marks such as an animals fur.
Sonia teaches as well as demonstrates. You can see her work on her website www.soniabacchus.co.uk.
See Sonia and her finished picture below.
What a Fantastic 2018 Annual Exhibition
We have just packed away our annual exhibition until next year (although we have one coming up in the Autumn), and what an exhibition it has been. The society sold 21 paintings, 4 from the browsers and 17 from the boards. We also sold over £200 of members cards. This 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.
This 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 four will be shown here soon. .

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 and a couple of other venues.
We will once again be organising days out during 2018 for all members, keep an eye out on our programme to see upcoming dates.
We have already booked to go back to Thorpe Hall on Saturday 28th July, and later on, a trip to Nene Valley Railway, both of these were extremely enjoyable venues and have already been requested by quite a few members.
