OUTDOOR PERSPECTIVES WORKSHOP - AN ARTISTS VIEW - PETER HINGE
Club artist Peter Hinge held a drawing workshop at the Wednesday club meeting 7th March, the topic being perspectives and how to see them when compiling outdoor scenes. At the start of the workshop one member quipped "I hope we don't have to draw any ships, becaues if we do I'll be sunk" only to find out later that Peter had included the drawing on the Titanic!
Peter prepared a special template for each of the members, and covered how to use the device in order to compose subjects from landscapes to ships. Everyone found the event to be both informative and at times amusing, and they all had a couple of completed drawings to take home.
Below is one of the completed drawings.

BASIL AXFORD - PERSPECTIVES WORKSHOP NOVEMBER 2017
Local teacher Basil Axford treated the members to a workshop / demonstration on the subject of perspectives and how to view and draw them. Although the subject may appear simple, in fact Basil highlighted some common faults made when setting out drawings and paintings etc. It was a very enjoyable couple of hours and our thanks go to Basil for volunteering his time.
GRAHAM COX - PASTEL WORKSHOP - OCTOBER 2017
It has conspired to be a hectic week for the members of Chilcompton Art Club. On Wednesday the 25th we had an all day pastel workshop in the St John’s Church Hall Chilcompton. The Wiltshire based professional artist Graham Cox, gave one of his excellent tutorial workshops. Mr Cox specialises in the medium of pastels and runs his business “Moody Views” http://www.moodyviews.co.uk/ from his studio in Trowbridge. The club members and a few guests were given an overview of the medium and then guided through producing two beautiful landscape pictures in the distinctive Cox style. For quite a few members, this was their first experience of using pastels, but with Mr Cox’s often humorous style and step by step guidance, everyone ended up being delighted with the final results that they produced to take home.
