Dawlish Tourist Information Centre

Artist Pat Rhodes will be exhibiting at the Tourist Information Centre

My name is Pat Rhodes and I have been painting and drawing for pleasure all my life. When I retired in 2012 I started painting at the Cheltenham School of Fine Art, where I took courses in Still Life, Life Drawing with Viv Ayres and Landscape Painting with Jayne Tricker. My favourite subject is Landscape. When I moved to Dawlish in October 2016 I was very pleased to be able to take classes in watercolour with Angie Jenner, whose relaxed approach encourages confidence with this tricky medium. I am hoping to develop as an artist by doing more sketching and painting on location. I am inspired by wide open spaces, still water and the changing sky. If anyone is interested in painting and
sketching outside (in suitable weather) at the Dawlish Warren Nature Reserve or the Exe Estuary at Turf Lock I would be pleased to hear from you. Contact 07742698454 or 01626 866303
