Exmouth Demonstration

I know you want to see what I pained for the Exmouth Art Society, but first I must just tell you about a lovely place to have a meal. As I needed to be at the venue for 9.00am we travelled down the night before and stayed in Topsham. Its a wonderful little place, lots of atmosphere, old boats, quaint buildings and a fab restaurant called 'The Galley' which specialises in sea food and overlooks the harbour. The head chef is Ed McLachlan (Masterchef's apprentice winner 2009) the meal was delicious, very memorable and well worth a visit.
Anyway, back to the painting, the Exmouth group were lovely, very welcoming, a friendly group who seem to enjoy rather delicious biscuits as well as painting.
They had asked for a coastal scene with boats, and this is what I painted for them.

Thank you to all of you who sat so quietly throughout while I chatted away!

After the 2 hour demo we headed for Budleigh Salterton where we walked on the beach, took some photos and narrowly missed getting a parking ticket as we overstayed our time limit in the car park. Back home now with our sea side memories.

ThanksFiona, for a great 2 hour demonstration. I thoroughly enjoyed your visit to Exmouth and definitely learnt a lot! It was super to have your relaxed and friendly approach combined with a very informative demo.
Look forward to following you blog!
