Hope everyone is safe and well. Keep on painting and when we are back to our normal lives we will have a session devoted to our "Virus Paintings" . This may be some time away but in the meantime keep in touch with each other by e-mail or our facebook. 
Good luck to everyone,

Adventurous Artists at Dobbie's

Dobbie's Garden Centre provided lots of colourful inspiration for our sketching group on Friday morning. It was warm and sunny in the cafe, out of the wind - so relaxing after a turbulent week.

The trip to the Affordable Art Show had to be cancelled due to the risk of coronavirus infection. The Annual General Meeting on  25th March will be held unless advice from the government changes.

Despite wintry weather, near capacity TAS members turned up to Hill Head artist Elaine Reed's demonstration "Seascape in Mixed Media" With inspirational features at her doorstep- sky, sea, sandy/pebble beach - Elaine showed, besides availability of propriety texture mediums, the choice of "sedimentary" (grainy-effect-mixed colours) and suitable paper surfaces - smooth NOT /rough - you can achieve painterly textures. So whatever type of painting you intend creating why not try some of Elaine's proven techniques?
