While I am at it, a reminder that the itinerary for next week has changed. Please see the Stop Press, and hopefully, we will all meet the following week for the AGM at the Bowls Club. Don't forget to return your forms about the new rules for the autumn season. These need to be with Sally P by 27th September.
As the weather is nice I'm supposed to be gardening - getting ready for the winter etc but I'm doing this instead, just in case I forget later.'
All in all, although I spotted no one I knew I had a really wonderful,day. Thank you to those who thought of the venue.
'First sketch I practiced perspective - and ran out of paper.
Second colour sketch squeezed in before we met at cafe for lunch.
Third is work in progress. Did the window but the rough and colourful stonework of the wall will take more time and care. There were four of us today and the weather was perfect.
The first sketch is of an oak tree which has undergone major surgery, in our campsite, the second is the view of chalk grassland in and woodland seen from our pitch.
Both are using waterproof pen; apologies for rubbish ponies,they kept moving!
I hope everyone has a good time in Dunwich tomorrow, we’re off to Dorset.
Well done for the exhibition, Lesley!
From Maggie-Anne, 'Here is today's acrylic pic. It is from a photo of a favourite hydrangea sent by a friend recently.
I haven't really managed to replicate the vivid flower colours and have perhaps ended up with a design/pattern rather than a realistic depiction.' I think a rather well-composed graphic type image.
Also worked on a technique from an old magazine using acrylic and painting knives. Again, pleased with the result but think it might have been better using oils. (Which is what they suggested but not wanting to waste some acrylic already on a palette......)The colours would have been picked up from below which didn't happen with the acrylic that well.
