Painters out on the Coast

Today marks the start of something exciting. Over the past month I have been contacting surfing artists/ creatives in the North Devon area , with the aim of getting us together to go outdoors and paint as a group.

So, eleven of us will be heading out today to paint for three days. Hopefully, producing enough work to sustain an exhibition, and generate enough interest to run regular painting trips , several times a year.

The first outing is to Lynmouth on the North Coast, a stunning place described by ;

 Thomas Gainsborough, English painter.1727-1788, who honeymooned there with his bride Margaret Burr, as "the most delightful place for a landscape painter this country can boast".

So keep an eye out next week for postings showing some of the results of this exciting first trip.
