Peterborough Art Society
We had an excellent Autumn exhibition this year, with 26 pictures being sold. One of our best years.
We have also recently finished a 3 month exhibition at the City Museum, where we sold 4 paintings.
Peterborough Art Society are always looking for other venues to display and sell our work.
Our next formal one will be in June 2020, so if you would like to exhibit with us, then find out about membership by either attending one of our meetings, or contacting us on email@example.com for details and an application form.
Painting Days Out
We have had some lovely days out painting together this year, our final one at the Nene Valley Railway. We will be planning more days out for 2020, so keep checking back on our programme for details.
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.
by Stephie Butler
Professional artist Stephie Butler came on 7th October to give us a demonstration on how to produce a watercolour portrait. She gave us tips on how to mix ideal skin tones, and how to build them up, ensuring that you leave some good highlights.
Stephie works with opaque colours, and usually only a few, mixing them to give her the balancing tones she needs to give a lovely soft result.
The result was amazing as you can see.
