Art Club Info
















Demonstrations and Bespoke Workshops:

Available for daytime and evening bookings throughout the South East. For areas beyond this boundary, I may request overnight accommodation but will consider all locations. My lively approach to painting, working directly from sketchbooks, offers an interesting insight into techniques for painting in oils, gouache and mixed media. Demonstrations are full of comment, hints and tips on colour mixing and explanations on how various techniques used for oil painting and mixed media works.Subjects for demonstrations include....... Interpreting Photographs, Oils Fast & Loose, Figures in Context; Beach scenes; Landscapes, Marine Sunsets and Garden views. Bespoke Workshops: If you have a specific requirement or subject, do give me a call or email to discuss your ideas. I am always happy to design a demonstration, or club workshop, just for your group.




Book an oil demonstration with Melanie Cambridge before the 31st December 2019 and receive a FREE No.8 LARGE FILBERT BRUSH for your Art Group. Contact Barbara at Art Profile for full details.

Enjoy a full demonstration with oils, starting from a blank canvas to a finished work within the standard two-hour timespan.

Subjects offered include, seascapes & coastal views, landscapes, woodland views, winter scenes with figures, sunsets and atmospheric works with texture.

I use alkyd medium and a little white spirit during my demonstrations, so fumes are kept to a minimum.



I love painting and sketching horses. During this demonstration, I start by showing you how to create a horses head, using a series of simple shapes, before going on to show how to draw a whole horse, again using shapes to ensure you keep everything in proportion.

After the break I switch to using Pentel Oil Pastels to produce a more finished study.

FREE 1" OVAL WASH BRUSH when booking a Gouache Demonstration before 31st December 2019. Contact Barbara at Art Profile for further details.

Gouache is a medium I love and much prefer to traditional watercolour. Indeed I have my own range of hand-made gouache colours (available to buy during my demonstrations / workshops).

Easier than traditional watercolour, using opaque white for highlights (and to correct any mistakes), let me show you just how versatile this medium can be. It is also possible mix gouache with watercolour and pastel within the same painting.

Finally, I use a special texture paste "Artist's Putty" to be able to include impasto work and knife painting techniques.
