EAC member exhibits with Society of Graphic Fine Arts

EAC member Elizabeth McCrimmon is showing three ink drawings at the prestigious Society of Graphic Fine Art’s 102nd annual exhibition in central London.

The exhibition runs from Monday 13 to Saturday 18 March at the Mall Galleries, The Mall, London SW1.

The Society of Graphic Fine Art promotes original works of high quality that show excellence in draughtsmanship and drawing by hand. Work chosen for the exhibition is selected from a very large pool of entries.

‘This is my first year exhibiting as a full member which is quite exciting. I feel extremely lucky to have my work accepted,’ said Elizabeth.

Building cities with scissors and glue

Everyone got stuck in with the paper, scissors and glue at our March collage workshop, led by Kim Amis, to produce a wide and wonderful range of cityscapes.

‘It was a very good evening – Kim always gives us surprising ways of collating materials and redesigning a cityscape idea,’ commented EAC member Dolores Kitchener.


Painting a portrait in acrylics

We enjoyed a great demo at our February meeting from artist Keith Morton of painting a portrait in acrylics.

Volunteer model Christine sat very patiently as Keith spent a lot of time measuring dimensions by eye and ensuring the foundations of the portrait were sound before he began adding paint.

Keith’s top tip for painting is to think carefully and make each brush mark just once – no fussing with the paint!
