She had her board and pallet prepared in purple, being the complimentary colour to the reds and oranges of autumn.

She also demonstrated glazing areas to soften clouds etc to great effect.

Sonia is a gifted artist who generously shares her knowledge with others, 
taking thought process out of their comfort zone.

The next demonstration for CASA members is on July, 12 when they will welcome Peterborough artist Tony Nero.

Tony will paint a still life working in oil.

Visitors should arrive in good time allowing for parking and registration. The demonstration commences at 7.30pm.

Prices remain unchanged, for members it costs £3.00 and guests £4.00 (under 25s free).
