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.”
Lesbury Art Group meets on Monday mornings at Lesbury Village Hall in the spring and autumn terms. Visit www.lesburyvillagehall.co.uk/art or ring 01665 830330.
