The Wednesday Group was formed a couple of years ago.
It’s aim was to give our more experience painters an opportunity to experiment and share ideas with one-another. It’s not a class, more a sort of co-operative where after pooling ideas of things we would like to try. Volunteers from the group lead the session.
We have painted with knives, sponges, and big brushes. We have worked in the woods and at the shore as well as in the clubhouse. We have experimented with materials, colour, texture, tone and line, and done some printing and collage......the list goes on. We also look at the work of an artist of the leader's choice, to try to extend our knowledge of what is possible. So far we have not run short of volunteers or ideas.
Not everyone leads as some people are too shy! and no-one judges anyone, so it is always relaxed and fun.


Following on from producing pictures from 'Happy Artistic Accidents', the group were inspired to look at American Painter Elizabeth Osborne, who is known for her luminosity in her paintings.
