Former pupil of artist Robert Lenkiewicz, Louise Courtnell, gave a portrait demonstration and talk at Hannahs at Seale-Hayne last weekend. During the afternoon she painted a stunning portrait of Pete Reeves, Arts Co-ordinator at Seale-Hayne. She also guided guests around the Lenkiewciz exhibition with curator Annie Hill-Smith.
Louise was taught by Lenkiewicz for 16 years and is a full-time painter living and working at Whitsand Bay, Cornwall. She is passionate about sharing and passing on his tonal approach to painting. The event raised £500 for the Dame Hannah Rogers Trust.
