Former artists society member Ken Spencer's paintings always proved very popular and now his cards are too.

Doreen Andrews has been very busy printing and selling cards of his pictures and donating the money to Ken's favourite charities - Macmillan and Sight Support. Now Doreen has been joined in her endeavours by Belper Fringe, Sight Support and Macmillan.

Belper Fringe will be selling the cards on the Belper Artisan Trail on 23 and 24 May at 28 The Market Place in aid of Sight Support

All this effort looks set to raise around £1600 in Ken's memory. Well done to all.

Portrait in Oils Demonstration

Caroline McFarlane took us through each stage of her portrait painting. Starting with a brief charcoal sketch, a drippy mix of acrylics followed by oils - we were enthralled. Many members worked hard all afternoon under Caroline's supervision to create their own portrait paintings.

 Landscape in Oils Demonstration

 Richard Holland kept us busy sketching with our brushes and attempting new techniques   such as wafting and tonking to create atmospheric landscapes. A professional demonstration   followed by a thoroughly enjoyable workshop.
