Our leaders (our self-styled ‘mad and dedicated fools’!) took the brave decision to run our session today. Just as well they did, as it turned out to be a dry, sunny and truly beautiful morning, with great light for anyone hardy enough to paint outdoors. Not a sign of snow or even a wintry shower.
But we stayed indoors to wonder at all Les’s art-inspiring treasures, laid out on the still-life tables. I particularly liked his carrots in a vase of water, which presented a great challenge with its reflections and refractions. Two took up this challenge, with splendid results. And what about those multilayered images inspired by various items in the display!
Les himself posed for us, with multiple changes of dress. He gave us three five-minute standing poses first, followed by a seated pose for about half an hour. Another seated pose (in summer hat!) followed the coffee break for about an hour. Like all our presenters, he put in a lot of work to prepare his session for us. Thank you Les!
