Roger's Watercolour
 Art Club

Hello to all you artists,

This free, on-line art club is for anyone to join who has
been on one of my watercolour painting courses.
I hope that you are all enjoying your painting  and felt that
you took away some new techniques that you can use
from the course.

Many people I see say that they don't know of a local art club close to where they live or if they do, the times they run do not fit in with their day to day work or other commitments.

So In July 2010 I started an on line club that you could all be part of and hopefully will inspire and encourage you all to paint more often and get your enjoyment factor up to another level.

Although I have called it  'Roger's art club', really it is
 your art club and not mine.
The more people that submit paintings each month, the
 more beneficial it will be for all.

This is not just for those of you who turn out great works of art,  it is for everyone.
 I want to see those of you who came on my course as complete beginners having a go and sending in your pictures. 
 You should all learn from looking at other peoples art,  seeing colour combinations that others have used that you
 like but may not have considered in the past, or perhaps noticing how others use light and shade etc.

If I waited until I painted the perfect picture before showing anyone then to this day I can honestly say that probably
 none of you would have seen any of mine yet.  I am never truly satisfied with any of my work, but that is what strives
 me on to keep trying to do better, so please don't wait until you have done the perfect picture before sending it in.
In fact it would be beneficial to all the members including yourself if you showed the paintings that went wrong with
 a little note by them from you of what you had trouble with. I could then also help you with any problems as required.

Once you have entered your paintings for 3 months you can have your own personal gallery page so that other
members can know a little more about you and see all of your paintings that have been submitted to the club. 
 To see how your page could look click here  or take a look at one of the members personal pages .
 All you have to do is send an e-mail asking for a personal page together with your picture attached
and any info you want to be entered.
If you have trouble sending me an e-mail from the link in the left hand bar then just send
any of your paintings or messages to :-
Have you any suggestions how we can make the club more useful and interesting ?

At the start of each month I  present you with a sketch for you to work from.

Try and work from the sketch without any major alteration to the lines but add things if you wish.
 If I give you a landscape drawing then you could add trees, fences or other things that you think
would make your picture look better.

The basic sketch will give you focus and all you really need to do is play with colour and texture to create
the mood of your picture. Every artists style and colours used will be a little different to the next and it will be
 great to put all your pictures together for you all to see just how different the same drawing can turn out.

Remember that you can add any comments about your picture such as the bits you had trouble
 with or bits that you really liked. Your name with any of your comments given are the only
 things that will be shown on the website next to your picture.
There is also a notice board that you can use to give comments on other members paintings.

Try and submit your pictures before the last day of each month.  At the end of each month
I will put the pictures together for you all to see.
I have set a maximum limit of 3 paintings per month for each person due to the
growing number of club members.
