Biography

The group of artists have been working together in various disciplines of watercolour, illustration and portraits by attending classes at Warwickshire Adult and Community Learning. We have continued our work with Kate Wiltshire, our fellow artist and tutor, throughout lockdown by using Zoom. Our main aim is to enjoy the creative process, and to continually develop our skills in a variety of media. Most of the group are retired or semi retired, and although we have little experience of exhibiting our work, we feel we would like to share our enthusiasm.

inspiration

Our inspiration is varied, but is all linked to the creative process and how we want to improve our understanding of the tools and techniques to create satisfying artwork. We all share a passion for learning, and as we have primarily been consumers of art, we are now taking a step to share our own art more widely.

medium

We have used a variety of media, including watercolour, ink, pastels, pens, pencils, line and wash and oils. Some of the group specialise in portraits, some of us are illustrating texts and stories and in our watercolour studies we have produced land and sea scapes, still life, the styles include realism, impressionist and occasionally abstract or semi abstract work.
