Helen Neave is a successful artist in water colour and a
full time teacher to many different groups of artists.
Because she had demonstrated to us so well some fifteen
years ago we invited her back to paint Wildlife in a
She adapted her technique to enable her to paint on a
vertical surface instead of a flat one, normal for
watercolour and explained her method of creating
interesting contours in the snow step by step, standing
aside to let her audience see. As a way of doing a
demonstration it was as good as we have seen and she
finished up with a lovely picture of a fox in a sunlit
wood in Winter.
Nanette Whiteway’s paintings will be on show in the
Building Society during January and Jane French, a
member of the Leicester Society of Artists, will paint a
portrait in oil at our next meeting at 7.30 on 30
January in the St Wlifrid’s Church Hall.
