BASIL AXFORD - PERSPECTIVES WORKSHOP NOVEMBER 2017

Local teacher Basil Axford treated the members to a workshop / demonstration on the subject of perspectives and how to view and draw them. Although the subject may appear simple, in fact Basil highlighted some common faults made when setting out drawings and paintings etc. It was a very enjoyable couple of hours and our thanks go to Basil for volunteering his time.

 GRAHAM COX - PASTEL WORKSHOP - OCTOBER 2017
It has conspired to be a hectic week for the members of Chilcompton Art Club. On Wednesday the 25th we had an all day pastel workshop in the St John’s Church Hall Chilcompton. The Wiltshire based professional artist Graham Cox, gave one of his excellent tutorial workshops. Mr Cox specialises in the medium of pastels and runs his business “Moody Views”  http://www.moodyviews.co.uk/ from his studio in Trowbridge. The club members and a few guests were given an overview of the medium and then guided through producing two beautiful landscape pictures in the distinctive Cox style. For quite a few members, this was their first experience of using pastels, but with Mr Cox’s often humorous style and step by step guidance, everyone ended up being delighted with the final results that they produced to take home. cox2017b
