SUMMER PAINTING DAYS

RGA Summer Painting Days 2017

Summer deserted us for the last of the Summer Painting Days at Mappledurham, but a few hardy souls braved the raindrops and produced some lovely works. The venue was stunning, and the staff friendly and welcoming. It rained persistently so when we got too damp we retreated to the tearoom to enjoy excellent cakes and convivial company - so altogether a lovely afternoon.

The Summer Painting Day at Shiplake church was a real success with the largest turnout so far, 14 painters loaded with equipment, lunch and creative intent.

There was a lovely atmosphere in the group as we settled in chosen places around the church or down the steep slope to the riverside and boat houses. The weather stayed good but providing a challenge with fast changing clouds and shadows on the water, not to mention boats and water fowl and the ever present need to decide whether to change your picture and suddenly insert a boat... or not.

We had a get together at 3.30 to view and admire the group output, it was noticed how very individual each person's work is.

The Summer Painting Days have been making the most of our hot summer weather as you can see from these photos from our day out at Dinton Pastures, with artists managing to find some shady spots. Not only were the glorious surroundings an inspiration for painting and sketching, some also found fellow artists as inspiration!

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.
