|This Group is a
friendly gathering of beginners and novices in the art of
watercolour. We meet regularly throughout the year every
other Wednesday afternoon usually in an art studio at Bracknell's South
Hill Park Arts Centre.
are no tutors and no testing of your ability so Members practice their
own techniques and develop their own style. This could be by
drawing a composition to scale, stretching their paper, transferring
the outline picture onto the watercolour paper, perhaps also doing a
tonal drawing and of course painting their picture. Or perhaps by
referring to an art book or photograph and just having a go, possibly
with a little advice and assistance from other members.
Although the Group has adopted a 'do your own thing' approach rather
than a structured ‘tutored’ course the standard of watercolours
exhibited by the Group is quite high. This is quite encouraging as most
members have done very little art and in particular watercolour until
they retired and joined U3A.
In October 2018 the group exhibited watercolours
at the annual Northern Parishes Arts Festival at Brownlow Hall. This
time we had a significant number of paintings to display covering a
number of genres.
