Hi Folks,
Here is the October 2019 newsletter:

1.    1. On October 31st we have our second ‘sit back and watch’ demonstration of the year, this one given by the water colour artist Paul Weaver who has demonstrated with us previously. Do spread the word as we can accommodate up to 50 or 60 guests on these occasions. The demonstration will start at 7pm and the cost to guests is £5.

2.    2. Well done to Sally who has won the ‘Simply Watercolours’ Facebook page September Challenge which had lighthouses as a theme. 

3.    3. Our last term of 2019 starts on 10th October. For those who pay termly the fee is £25 and I will have the Paypal machine at the meeting for those who wish to pay by card.

4.    4. The Youtube video of Glyn Overton’s pastel demonstration given on 12th September is now available on the Lacock Art Group’s Youtube channel at

5.    5. From Max Hale – “SEVEN IMAGES OF ACRYLICS” - To celebrate my 20 years of working with acrylics I am running a seven-week course where each week there will be a different subject to paint including, animals, landscape, portrait, flowers, still life, water/coastal, skies.

Each one presents its own challenge and we will tackle it head-on. A seriously interesting set of classes for those who want to improve their style and understanding of how to deal with this great and underrated medium.

Cranfield Colours have let me use some of their paints so you will be able to try them out within a class of your choice.
