Recent Demonstrations and Sketchout days

october 2023 - nic cowper watercolour snow scene

On 26th October PACS members were treated to a demonstration by Nic Cowper creating a landscape snow scene.  

Nic was very entertaining, with a good helping of humour and useful tips.  We hope to have him back for a workshop in the future.  With 40 attendees, this was the final and best attended event of the 2023 demonstration programme.


A lovely evening with Rick Holmes at the September demonstration at Hearne Leisure Centre.   He was very amusing and shared so many of his techniques. He amazed us by starting from from his acrylic ink splodges to his beautifully crafted pastel river scene.

Our workshop coordinator was quick to approach Rick about doing a workshop in the future.  

St. Huberts church sketchout day august 2023

On 7th August we had a sketchout day at St Huberts Church near Finchdean.  The rain held off but the clouds provided some dramatic skies, and the sunflowers were in full bloom.   Thanks to Margaret Newbigin who stepped in at the eleventh hour to meet & greet a dozen members who found the location inspiring, as can be seen from these images of their work and the location.


Kim Page provided us with a wonderful demonstration of his watercolour techniques with a floral arrangement.  Hoping Kim will be available to run a workshop next year. 

South Harting Sketchout - June 2023

Images from the recent sketchout day that took place in a private garden just on the edge of South Harting in West Sussex.  Click any image to enlarge.

Enjoying fabulous views overlooking Buster Hill and the surrounding countryside, inspired our group to produce some wonderful pictures.  It was a warm sunny day and our marvellous host looked after us by bringing refreshments.  If you’re interested in participating, check the events programmes on the What’s on page.

Are you free in the evening on the last Thursday of the month?
