Welcome to SoFAP
The Summer 2016 Exhibition and Sale has been another triumph for SoFAP members, with many visitors commenting on the terrific standard of work.
Members use the twice yearly exhibitions to market their work by inviting prospective gallery owners and potential buyers to come along.
With a wide range of styles, hugely affordable prices, this is a great way for members to also demonstrate their progress and innovation.
Works created during our tutored workshops and plein air days very often sell too: a double whammy some might say.
We were also part of the Hammersmith & Fulham Art Festival 2016, where we were part of 300 art activities. Do join us if you would like to be part of our success.
Workshop 17th June, Dancing with Oils!
Led by Adebanji Alade, who specialises in painting urban landscapes
We gathered on a chilly June morning at the Ranelagh Sailing Club looking forward to an inspiring and rejuvenating workshop with Adebanji Alade as our tutor: he didn’t disappoint us. He kick started the morning by giving us a demonstration of an urban scene using oil. In his inimitable style, he showed us how to break down an image into quarters, initially painting slowly, marking the painting, adding shades and shadows and then mixing in heavier paints to start adding depth and contrast. We were all mesmerised by the way he worked, his paintbrush dancing on the canvas.
