SUMMER PAINTING DAYS

With some new and fascinating venues, our organisers Nina and Karen are looking forward to welcoming you to some great days out with hopefully good weather.

For further information contact Nina on 0118 947 1307 or 07500543256. It would be good if you can let Nina know if you are intending to come along. Or email Karen publicity@rga-artists.org.uk

Please bring along your own outdoor painting and drawing equipment. These sessions are untutored, however, we always enjoy gathering together at the end of the day to review our work.

Work produced at the first Summer Painting Day 2017:

Harris garden

Our first Summer Painting Day of 2017 was at the university's lovely Harris garden and was enjoyed by 11 RGA artists, who all said it was a great success. There were lovely seas of blue and amazing avenues of stunning lime green euphorbias and Nina caught the last of the cherry blossom.
