Outdoor Sketching Sessions: En Plein Air with Cara Finnigan – 24th August

Aug 24, 2024   -   Aug 24, 2024

Cara has a passion for colour and the natural world and is never happier than when she is painting the sea, sky, and landscapes that make up our beautiful world.  She uses watercolour, acrylic and oils and works both in her studio and outside, en plein air, to capture colour and texture. 

North Devon Arts artists are leading Saturday morning En Plein Air sketching sessions along the River Taw at Barnstaple, following in the footsteps of Turner, one of the nation’s favourite painters.

With his grandparents reputedly born in South Molton, Turner made various trips to North Devon, famously painting the River Taw at Barnstaple, where many of these riverscape scenes can still be recognised today! Stand where Turner did and sketch what he saw!

You can bring your own preferred materials and equipment, which could include: watercolours, small plastic water container, pen and inks, pencils, charcoal, sketchbook/paper, portable easel, etc. Or limited materials will be available if required.

Suitable from beginners to expert level. Children over 14, but must be accompanied by an adult. Max: 15 people per session.

Wear suitable clothing for getting messy and for the riverside as it can get chilly.

10am – 12.30pm (meet in Museum Reception 10am)
