SUMMER PAINTING DAYS

A programme of days throughout the summer when we meet up to paint and draw at various venues. This year we have a mix of new and those that proved popular last year to visit.

These are an opportunity to paint and sketch with like-minded souls. You can wander off on your own or join with friends and colleagues to find the view that inspires you, or both! 

We like to meet up at the end of the day and share our results, but the day is totally unstructured, mix and mingle as you want. All members and friends are welcome; there is no RGA charge. You are responsible for individual expenses such as admission fees and parking if applicable and refreshments as you require.

Please bring along your own outdoor painting and drawing equipment.
It is a good idea to bring your own refreshments.

If you are interested in coming please phone Karen on 07709895274 or Nina on 07500543256 to let them know, leave a message if there is no answer and we will get back to you with directions and meeting arrangements for the beginning of the day.

If you just want more information you can email publicity@rga-artists.org.uk

 

Saturday 25th May 2019
Dinton Pastures

Our first Summer painting day was at Dinton Pastures, the weather was perfect - warm, bright and sunny. We met at 10.30am then wandered out to find a view to sketch, with lovely results. After a tasty lunch together we ventured forth again for the afternoon. It was a lovely day, in good company and productive for all as the images from our throw down at the end of the day show. Looking forward to the next one on 9th June in Kate's garden in Binfield... see details below.

Shiplake Church

Church Lane, Shiplake, Oxfordshire, RG9 4BS
10:30am – 4pm

A popular venue, with views over the Thames. Shiplake Church dates from 1229 and overlooks the Thames on a chalk escarpment, a short walk from the Thames Path.

It is advisable to bring lunch and refreshments. Although the pub is good for a light lunch, coffee and the loo, for those who choose to paint by the river or cornfield it's a bit of a walk back.

Directions: Coming from Reading on the A4155 into Shiplake turn right into a lane opposite the pub and speed camera. This is just before Shiplake College, and is marked Shiplake Church. There is a car park at the start of the lane, and limited spaces down by the church.
