April Demo

The next Friday evening demonstration will be held on 12th April in Market Hill Rooms from 8.00 to 10.00pm when Ernie Butler will be demonstrating ‘Seascape in Oils’.

Ernie Butler was trained by William Calladine, who was apprenticed to the last living Dutch Old Master -Jan Hendrik Everson.  He was taught the techniques they used including the Flemish technique. He has also studied the methods used by other artists including Turner and Constable. These skills are clearly evident in his paintings, which display a feeling of emotion, atmosphere and light.

Ernie is honoured to be a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. He teaches, demonstrates and has also been funded by the Arts Council of England on projects.  He works in oils, charcoal, pencil and ink and his paintings can be found in international collections and exhibitions.

Examples of Ernie’s work can be seen on his website.
