Painting the Sunshine back into Shaldon’s Summer

Members of Teignmouth Art Society met in Shaldon last Thursday for a sketching and painting day. The weather was a little bit chilly, but with sunshine in their hearts and hot drinks from the Clipper in their tummies the artists made the skies blue and sea turquoise.

Outdoor sketching is completely absorbing and very good for well-being. It’s lovely to meet up with friends, exchange gossip and have a giggle. If all goes to plan there’s a lovely picture to take home too – a picture full of sunshine reflecting the fun and enjoyment rather than the reality of slightly grey skies!

The artists will be meeting again on the back beach, come rain or shine on Monday 11th July.
