Dawlish Tourist Information Centre

Artist Pat Rhodes will be exhibiting

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 I would be pleased to hear from you. Contact 07742698454 or 01626 866303
The Ugly Duckling Tearoom 

Artist Richard Weeks is exhibiting

I am very much a part time hobby artist and escape from work into abstract expression. Most of my pictures are Acrylic on canvas and I paint intuitively and not always to please others. I am a member of the Abstract Art group and our most recent exhibitions have been at  the Walkway gallery the Phoenix, Exeter and the Real food Cafe as well as being part of the Art Week Exeter. Any inquires please contact Angie at Gallery Number 2.

Ursula Andrejczuk Landscape and Portrait Painter

I paint many of my pictures outdoors so my studio is quite compact and has to fit into a backpack. I take it to my favourite spots, like Dawlish Warren Nature Reserve in autumn, heathland and woods above Dawlish and Dartmoor with its beautiful rivers. I work mostly in alla prima technique, which means finishing a picture in one session. I find this way of painting exciting, engaging and at times unpredictable – especially when there are interruptions like a herd of curious cows, a sudden rain or a change in light conditions.
