There was a very good attendance of members and friends at the Trinity Centre on Tuesday 10th April for a lively demonstration of portrait painting by Ron Satterthwaite.

Ron Satterthwaite’s ‘completed on the day in two hours’ demo portrait of Sheila Martin.

Sheila Martin, one of the members present was selected by the drawing of lots to be the model for the afternoon and was later the delighted recipient of the finished portrait. In the course of the two hour demonstration, Ron created a fine portrait of Sheila. Working freely with strong colour on a multi-coloured ground he created an excellent likeness which captured the essence of the sitter’s character.

Our thanks are due to artist and model for another enjoyable and instructive demo and to Rob Leckey for continuing to organise such an attractive programme. Also a big thank you to those members responsible for producing the delicious cakes for consumption during the break. All in all, a great afternoon!
