Anyone can paint!  That was the message on Wednesday this week when artist, Jayne Good, expertly demonstrated a very effective, wet-on-wet oil technique.  A landscape picture was gradually built up within the hour and raffled at the end (pictured above).  Jayne’s witty commentary was humorously interjected with demonstrations of techniques that included ‘flicky over,’ ‘curly whorly,’ and ‘whacking.’

Jayne also explained how she had tried working in various mediums, including water colour, coming across the Bob Ross technique unintentionally on a birthday treat painting day.  She enjoyed it so much she became a Bob Ross instructor, now teaching a range of workshops and undertaking regular work with people who have had strokes or are experiencing mental health problems.  More examples of Jaynes’ work are below:
