Have your say

A group of enthusiastic artists in South Holland have been inspired to paint a Norfolk scene.

They are members of Spalding Arts & Crafts Society who watched one of their members, professional artist Mo Teeuw, paint a scene in oils from the Norfolk Broads.

Mo stepped in to share her techniques at the December meeting of the group when the booked demonstrator couldn’t make it.

The society’s publicity secretary Maggie Goodsell said it was an “excellent oil painting demonstration”given in Mo’s “usual lively and entertaining style.”

During the evening members’ entries to the December Painting Challenge were on display. The challenge was to produce a painting in any style or medium of The Old Mill at Lyme Regis.

The competition was judged by John Gray, of Riverbank Studios in Spalding, with prizes supplied by the SAA and by Mo Teeuw.

First place went to Wyn Cocks, second place to Sally Slade and third was Colin Twell.

Maggie expressed thanks to all the members who entered.

There is no January meeting but members are looking forward to a visit by David Hyde on February 7 at Pinchbeck Village Hall – and everyone is welcome to attend.

The group is open to both professional artists as well as total beginners looking for help and inspiration.

The regular demonstrations by visiting artists are held at Pinchbeck Village Hall on the first Tuesday of every month at 7.30pm.
