Peter Brown and the NEAC at Messums

I spent this afternoon at Messum’s in Cork Street where Peter Brown NEAC gave a very entertaining talk on his life as a painter on the streets of London and Bath.

Having recently spent a day painting with Peter in London and watching his painting emerge from the blank canvas it was good to hear his thoughts on everything from coping with changing light to why he wont use a camera.

The talk coincided with the exhibition The Magic and Poetry of Everyday Life. A collection of paintings by New English Art Club artists from its beginnings in the nineteenth century to the present day.  This fine exhibition is well worth seeing and runs until the 3rd of July 2010.
