About Us

Caroline Champougny

Artist and Event Organiser

As a paint and art lover, I founded Let’s Paint Pompey in 2018 to allow people to discover the art of painting while sipping a drink at the pub. I create models (so no one gets blank page anxiety) and teach others how to paint them. Beyond seeing my students learn new techniques, the most important part for me is that they have fun and get an opportunity to be creative. I encourage students to add personal touches and everyone ends up with a unique handmade artwork. That makes it even more interesting! If you have never painted before, this is a great place to start!

Replicas

Reproducing artworks from reknown artists allowed me to hone my techniques. Renoir, Van Gogh, Roy Lichtenstein, Afremov, to name only a few, were my artistic “mentors”.

Original creations

My semi-figurative paintings are created following my “stream of consciousness”. This term, coined by Willian James in 1890 in The Principles of Psychology, designates the expression of thoughts and feelings that pass through the mind.  It was mainly used in literature by James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and Marcel Proust to depict interior monologue. When I sketch a future painting, I let my mind wander and try to link in an aesthetic way the elements that flow in my stream of consciousness.
