Jane Leitch Demonstration

Jane Leitch Demonstration

 

25 members of Teignmouth Art Society were entertained by Gidleigh artist Jane Leitch on Friday 9th February.

Jane demonstrated her way of painting a figure in oil paint and used a photo source of a farrier shoeing a horse that she had taken.

Jane is self taught, having started painting at the age of 50 after being encouraged by her mother to do so.

Having started on watercolour she soon moved on to pastel and oil painting, which she prefers.

She is in great demand for commissions of paintings of animals and family groups in both mediums.

More of her work can be seen at her website www.janeleitch.co.uk.

The Art Society hold fortnightly demonstrations by different artists throughout the winter at Teign Heritage Centre 

The photo shows Jane at her easel.
