Members of Lesbury Art Group were introduced to a new technique to enhance their paintings at a workshop at the Village Hall.

Whitley Bay artist Clifford Blakey gave them a tutorial showing them a more impressionistic approach to landscape painting which included his trademark spattering and flicking.

Group member Joyce Manners said: “I am well outside my comfort zone here.” But she was pleased with her eventual results.

Ian August echoed the thoughts of the whole group when he said: “I thoroughly enjoyed Cliff’s presentation. I must try to paint in a more open manner after this.”
