Abstract in oil by Charmian Murley
Tuesday mornings see a group of, on average, some 12 or so enthusiastic oil painters arrive for Nellie’s ‘Atelier Libre’.  As the choice of subject and technique is free, it is always interesting to go round and see what the other students are creating and what methods they are using.

From each other you learn a lot and dare to experiment with Nelly always on hand to gently advise, suggest and help when asked – but she never criticizes!  
Prof Nelly van Hijfte (R) and Trish Jones

 From time to time Nelly sets up a special class to study a particular technique or style or painting for those who are interested.

For the rest of the time only your imagination sets the limits.

This is a very social group, always starting with coffee and cake before getting down to the real business of the day – creativity in oil.
