These last two weeks have been rather busy with Charlie teaching “down South”. First of all he was in Lewes at the Chapter House Art Group.
and they painted this lovely picture in acrylics, a new medium for some painters.
And then he was in Horam with the W.I. for two days. As there were some people only on one day and others for the two days, Charlie painted two views of a local Arts and Crafts house beloved of the Bloomsbury group – Charleston.
Front and back views.
Then it was off to Goudhurst. The hotel, as usual, did us proud and the weather was fantastic. Some of the painters had been before and it was the first time for others including Sam Rose and his wife Jill who came all the way from Newfoundland in Canada. Those of you who follow Charlie on Twitter will have seen paintings by Sam. He is an Archdeacon at home but was renamed the Jolly Vicar by the group!
The group was able to paint outside every day and we all got a tan. One day we were accompanied by the local wildlife who were very determined to eat something.
