Half hour landscape

Painting in the Church Rooms
There was an excellent turnout at the September meeting of Old Buckenham Social and Wine Club for a presentation by Dr Robin MacDonald, the Chairman of the Suffolk Art Group. In a witty and informative manner Robin demonstrated that by mixing a few basic colours from his palette box he was able to produce a creditable landscape painting in about 30 minutes whilst explaining the basic perspective rules in an understandable way.
Robin’s painting teacher also taught Prince Charles and therefore their styles are very similar. Robin’s paintings are now much sought after, he teaches art to various groups and is currently producing painting DVDs.
Until his retirement he was a partner in a large Essex medical centre and was the medical adviser to the Trisha Show on Anglia Television.
On Thursday 8 October, Chris Weston will be explaining about the changing shape of the Norfolk coastline in his talk entitled “Claimed by the sea”. All are welcome at the Church Rooms for the meeting which starts at 7.45pm.
