Flixton has a wonderful mixture of subjects for sketching and painting, from aircraft and museum displays to rescued parts of dead machinery, fished from the sea and gathered up from runways. These last resemble an elephants graveyard or a group of beached whales, with their fins in the air.
Below are some scene-setters, and photos of those who came during the day. The last photo is of three of the four who stayed to the end and went for tea at Pura Vida garden centre (photographed by Sally P).
Thrandeston Green, Tour de France starts this week, and Bodmin moor
I managed one sketch this morning, and am also including an unfinished oil that I am working on - based on the back doors of houses in Eye.
Next week's outing is to John's garden - details in the Summer programme on the Events page. Let's hope the weather has done with heavy rain in time!
Send your work to Noreen for next week's blog.
