Charlie has recently returned from Bridlington art festival at the Spa, “Art Waves”.

On Friday, he was teaching 35 GCSE students how to paint inĀ  watercolour. Quite a daunting task but the students (and their teachers) seemed to enjoy the morning immensely so maybe he has drawn a few more into the ranks of watercolour artists. We can’t show you the students, of course, but this is the view from the “art room”, looking out over the bay. Not a bad classroom!

On the Saturday, we had the sales stall set up and Charlie also taught an (adult) workshop.

And on Sunday it was a demonstration on the stage in the main hall, as well as judging the open art competition. Busy, busy!

Demo in Royal Tunbridge Wells

In the heart of Tunbridge Wells, close to the famous Pantiles (which are under very noisy renovation!) is a very long-established art society. Charlie was demonstrating there on a sunny afternoon earlier this month.

This was the first picture in the style of Roland Hilder.

And then a quickie to finish, a bit of snow!

One lady wrote afterwards:

“I just want to say a very big thank you for an immensely entertaining afternoon and the excellent demonstration you gave. We all loved it!”
