Tonal Value Exercise by Students – 27th Feb 2018.

Working in Tone with Charcoal is quite challenging especially for students new to this medium, its a delicate and soft medium, creating beautiful tonal values.

The class at ‘Blisland’ were set this exercise, before they could start working in colour with watercolour this week.  Here are the results of ‘Oranges’ in tone and some watercolour paintings in progress..



Art Exhibition ‘Cheque’ Presentation.

We were greeted at the ‘Cornwall Air Ambulance’ Base, with a ‘Warm Welcome’ and ‘Many Thanks’ for our donation from our Art Exhibition.  Thank you ‘One and All’ for your contributions.

Charity Art Exhibition Summary.

Thank you to everyone that helped me to run the excellent ‘Charity Art Exhibition’.

We raised £610.50p for ‘Cornwall Air Ambulance’.  However this figure will increase further, as I am still waiting to hear back from them, as to how much was donated in the separate charity collection containers.

The exhibition was opened by the Town Crier of Liskeard, Chris Smurthwaite, it was an enjoyable opening and preview evening.

Thank You One and All.
