Hot today, or what? It was scorching! Must have been a record, somewhere in the thirties. How fortunate then that Sarah made her swimming pool available to us, resulting in some gentle cavorting, as a welcome break from artwork. Just eight of us present - where were the gents today??? Sarah also brought us refreshing cold drinks during the day, and later supplied delicious scones and cake for tea. Thank you Sarah - also for the story about your Dad (Tony) who vowed to have a word with his Maker about Gravity and Perspective. I wonder if he did.
A variety of subjects lent themselves to sketching and the opportunity to experiment with different materials. I think we had some very interesting results. Click on images to enlarge them.
By the way, spot the blurs mentioned at tea - another ‘experiment!
Next week it’s Shorelands (Dickleburgh), where we will be able to see our Summer Exhibition, besides doing some drawing and painting. We hope lots of you will come, even if it is just to look at the pictures and have a coffee and chat.
Next week, for Pin Mill, some of us plan to gather at the Eye Community Centre car park at 9.15am and share lifts. Hope to see you with pencils and brushes ready! By the way, any of you who have seen the SAA's Summer "Paint" magazine will have noticed (1) a demonstration of a painting by Charles Evans at Pin Mill, (2) a John Glover self-portrait as winner of their Professional Artist of the Year, and (3) that they are still looking for more entries in the "Paint a Poppy Challenge".
By the way, the glitch with our website is now resolved with Weebly, so all should be in working order again.
