Demonstration by Kerry Bennett   www.kerrybennett.co.uk

Dandelion Meadow in Watercolour

Kerry is an artist with a passionate and deep appreciation for flora, fauna and the natural world. Born in Argentina and growing up in Brazil she became enchanted with the nature on her doorstep.

Painting from an early age she strove to capture the sub-tropical essence of her surroundings, with works combining both colour and nature. Kerry's itinerant lifestyle continued when she moved to the United States to study fine art and ceramics at Palomar College, California. Having successfully completed her studies she made one more move to settle in the United Kingdom, her ancestral home, where she continues to paint the natural world as she sees it.

She now lives near to the coast in Battle, East Sussex from where, drawing on her unique life experiences, she paints an eclectic mix of nature, plants and animals in expressionist and realist styles. Kerry also enjoys life as a professional art tutor giving regular classes, workshops and demonstrations.

Demonstration by Michelle Illing    www.micheleilling.co.uk

Watercolour portrait with emphasis on wrinkles

I am an art enthusiast and like to think well known educator and demonstrator living in the Southeast of England. In my early career I worked as a freelance illustrator in advertising and publishing.

 

I have had paintings shown in many joint exhibitions across the UK including The Mall Galleries, London where in 2014 I received the Faber-Castell Award for my pastel painting of 'Big Baby'.

I regularly paint private commissions, particularly portraiture and have paintings in collections at home and abroad.
 

​I have created a number of art video courses in collaboration with ArtTutor.com and have been a featured artist in the Pastel Journal of America, Artists and Illustrators magazine and have had several articles published in Paint magazine.

 

My passion for art just keeps growing and I love to share that passion with my students. I have run my own regular classes and workshops for over 17 years in mixed-media, watercolour, pastel, acrylic, drawing and pen and ink. I also take workshops, demonstrations and critiques for other art groups and have organised and been the principal tutor on painting holidays abroad.

November 7th

WORKSHOP Melanie Cambridge will 

introduce you to Gouache

the forgotten medium

STRICTLY MEMBERS ONLY

Places will have to be limited for this

so make sure you book a seat early.

I have been painting full time for over 20 years and still get a “buzz” when outside in changing light.  The challenge of trying to capture the essence of the scene in front of me has always provided the starting point for my work.

This year, I have been developing new ideas in my studio, moving towards a semi-abstract interpretation of the landscape. I found myself using colours such as Prussian Blue and Turquoise, painting big skies over expansive landscapes or coastlines. These new works are giving me a renewed passion for painting. I hope you find them an exciting and interesting interpretation of the ever-changing English Landscape
