How I paint

“Autumn along the River” (acrylic painting)

“Autumn along the River” (acrylic painting)

For over forty years my interest in painting has continued to flourish and I have continued to experiment with various techniques and mediums. I also studied Art and Photography to advanced levels through college courses and developed skills in various media and subject matter through the wonderful classes taught by Helena Anderson from whom I learned so much, over a period of five years or more, as did many other student artists, many of whom are still painting today.

WNAA Spring Exhibition 2022 in Pictures

Our first exhibition this year, held over the Easter weekend, was a great success with 430 visitors over the 4 days. It was so nice to be back at Thornham after three years and the weather was very kind to us, which made it even better.  Thanks to all who made this happen – the helpers and invigilators, as well as Izzy Wingham and John Lawson, who curated this time.

A new art gallery has brought a blaze of colour to a seaside town hall.

Jackie Kitch has opened her third gallery in Hunstanton in the carrstone civic building on The Green.
The ground floor, which previously held the resort’s tourist information centre, is now filled with paintings, photographs, art works and crafts.

“I love Hue” App review

Sometimes we all need a mindless distraction. However, downloading this app onto my phone made me think. In fact it sent me down a rabbit hole of colour definition and what is “hue”.

The app’s premise is very simple. You start off with some coloured squares which are arranged in terms of gradient of colour and hue, you press start, it jumbles them up and you must restore harmony.
