Workshops and Demonstrations 2019

On Saturday 9 November 2019 members of the group and a few guests gathered at St Mary’s Hall for a day workshop with local artist Tony Homer. Tony’s work features abstracted images of landscapes, buildings, boats and seascapes, and in this workshop we chose to try and paint abstracted boats.

We were definitely out of our comfort zones as abstract art is not a style any of us normally follow. Tony made it look easy and encouraged us to explore painting boats in an expressive and colourful way. With Tony’s guidance most people produced a painting that was different to their usual style, which gave us the first steps in a new way of adding energy to any painting.

Thanks to Tony for his clear explanations of how to paint in an abstract way, all the helpful tips he gave us, and for bringing along paint and other materials to share.
