CATHERINE BEALE WORKSHOP
Members of Chilcompton Art Club were treated to a masterclass in watercolour painting, under the tutelage of local professional artist Catherine Beale. Catherine specialises in light-filled and contemporary watercolours and has recently started experimenting, and exploiting, with pigment behaviours using a method she has termed “gravity painting”. The cascading techniques enable paints to mingle and run to create delicate veils of colour, as well as collide and interact to create interesting effects. Her demonstration and combined workshop explained these techniques to the club's members at a recent Wednesday group meeting. During the workshop phase, members worked at producing their own version of a particular scene entitled "The Gateway" and were fully inspired to attempt their own paintings in the future.
There may well be some examples on show at the forthcoming club exhibition on Saturday November the 23rd, to be held in St. John's Church Hall, Chilcompton.
