Hello to all you artists,
This free, on-line art club is for anyone to join who has
been on one of my
I hope that you are all enjoying your painting and felt that
took away some new techniques that you can use
from the course.
Many people I see say that they don't know of a local art club close to where
live or if they do, the times they run do not fit in with
their day to
or other commitments.
So In July 2010 I started an on line club that you could all be part
hopefully will inspire and encourage you all to paint more often
and get your
enjoyment factor up to another level.
Although I have called it
'Roger's art club', really it is
your art club and not mine.
The more people that submit paintings each month, the
more beneficial it will be for all.
This is not just for those of you
who turn out great works of art, it is for everyone.
I want to see
those of you who came on my course as complete beginners having a go and sending
in your pictures.
You should all learn from looking at other
peoples art, seeing colour combinations that others have used
like but may not have considered in the past, or perhaps
noticing how others use light and shade etc.
If I waited until I painted the perfect
picture before showing anyone then to this day I can honestly say that probably
none of you would have seen any of mine yet. I am never truly satisfied
with any of my work, but that is what strives
me on to keep trying to do better,
so please don't wait until you have done the perfect picture before sending it
In fact it would be beneficial to all the members including yourself if you
showed the paintings that went wrong with
a little note by them from you of what
you had trouble with. I could then also help you with any problems as required.
As of 1st December 2017 this club is moving from this website to a "closed group" of Facebook
where members can interact with each other easier, without going through
me each time.
Have you been on one of my courses and want to join our small friendly art
Then send me a friends request on Facebook........... it's as easy as that.
At the start of each month I present you with a sketch
for you to work from.
Try and work from the sketch
and add things if you wish or use the basic theme
of the month to
create your own picture.
Remember that you can add any comments about your picture such as the bits you had
with or bits that you really liked.
Your name with any of your comments given are the only
things that will be shown
on the website next to your picture.
