Outdoor Painting – North Fambridge


The gods must have been looking down on us for our painting out at North Fambridge on Sunday 10th June 2012. We had arranged to meet in the Pub, The Ferry Boat Inn for 1 p.m. for lunch before setting off for a painting afternoon.

The Pub is very picturesque in it’s own right and has some very nice food.

After suitably filling our bellies we set to and found something to paint, we ended up at the very end of the road, past the boat yard. Having spent a couple of pleasant hours chatting and painting we called it a day just in time for the rain to start. A really nice afternoon had by all.

Sad Loss of a Much Respected Member

It is with deep regret and great sorrow that we have to report the untimely death of Brian Jones. Brian collapsed and passed away on the afternoon of Thursday 7th June 2012 amongst fellow artists doing what he liked best. He was a much respected and well liked member of Rayleigh Art Group and will be sadly missed. Although he was not a committee member, Brian was always willing to offer a helping hand at any of the Club’s functions or Exhibitions. He also provided the picture of Rayleigh Mill which is used as the header for the Rayleigh Art Group web site and produced the display header for the Rayleigh Art Group Golden Jubilee celebrations.

Further details on Funeral arrangements etc. will be posted as these become available.
