About:

Lesley Williams paints mostly in acrylics or oils, taking much of her inspiration from walking or sailing the beautiful North Norfolk coast and an ever changing garden.

A member of the West Norfolk Artists Association (www.westnorfolkartists.org) and the Village Art Group.

imageWork in progress this afternoon in Cambridge . I joined about 30 other artists to paint ‘en plein air’.

PaintOut is always a challenge – it makes me work to order with time constraints, but good to do something different. Met some lovely people who stopped to see my paintings.

Thanks to the PaintOut team for another great event. Work is for sale at Cheffins Art Gallery until Friday afternoon.

 

I’ve recently completed these three oil paintings, all smaller than much of my work. I like to work with a palette knife and build up layers over time, so sometimes my paintings take months to complete. There are always quite a few on the go in my studio!

PAINT OUT WELLS was a one day event in 2018, with about 20 artists painting around the town, harbour and on the beach. A chilly morning was followed by the threat of rain later, but it all turned out fine in the end. This was the result of my efforts:

 

 

 

 

 

 

PAINT OUT GREAT YARMOUTH

I REALLY ENJOYED BEING INVOLVED WITH THIS ON SATURDAY 1st SEPTEMBER!
“Paint Out is thrilled to be working with the Norfolk Museums Service and particularly the Time and Tide Museum to bring artists the opportunity to paint some scenes from Great Yarmouth for this one day event and display of them in a museum setting for a week, at the same time as such renowned painters Turner, Constable and Cotman are being exhibited to the general public.

 

 

 

 

 

Paint Out Great Yarmouth gives artists the chance to retrace the steps of Turner, Constable and Cotman, taking inspiration from the artworks on display in the exhibition, allowing them to create their own contemporary scenes of Great Yarmouth life which will be displayed in the museum during the final week of the ‘Drawn to the Coast’ exhibition run.”

Drawn to the Coast: Turner, Constable, Cotman. Exhibition open until Sunday 9th September at the Time and Tide Museum.

My exhibition over the Bank Holiday was hugely enjoyable. I met some interesting people and caught up with old friends. I was thrilled to sell 5 of my paintings! With my lovely helpers we also raised over £200 for our local dementia support group. There were also young artists adding work to the exhibition.
