This week I joined the Newquay Society of Artists! I heard about the Newquay Society of Artists after noticing various exhibitions popping up over the summer. After discovering that they have a full line-up of demonstrations and exhibitions planned for 2018-2019 I was keen to join.

My Artistic Search for…More! In school I learned about line, form, light and shadow, I learned these skills carefully and aimed to recreate what I saw on the page. We used acrylic paint and I was good at this; able to create an accurate representation of what I was copying. This was praised at first, then criticised. After being taught how to capture what I saw accurately I was then encouraged to be inaccurate. Students around me were being applauded for originality, intention and concept – more than skill and technique.

In association with art supplies shop Cowling & Wilcox, artists had to submit their artwork by 1st July 2016. I’m fortunate to be a runner-up.
