Firstly, The Royal Academy has Live Short Life Drawing poses for you to try, available HERE and also Romeo the horse, who posed last year and is being re-posted for drawing, available HERE.
Secondly, Sky's Landscape Artist of the Year is back, and Sky Arts is now free-to-air on Freeview (it should be Channel 11, though you might need to rescan the channels on your TV to find it). It airs on Wednesday evening, but is repeated at various times during the week.
Thirdly, Rick Stein's Cornwall, Episode 1 (on BBC iPlayer), features Kurt Jackson and Rick Stein exploring the Land's End peninsular together HERE.
And Carolyn's own contribution this week of a cyclamen that re-flowered.
Here is Sally P's take on the 'mystery object' from last week. 'For this picture I used an old gelliprint as the base and then collaged using other gelliprints. A very relaxing and therapeutic time. And quite a challenge.' I think behind the picture is a tablecloth (?Sal), which looks as though it has been chosen to complement the image!
As you will see the 'mystery object' (tin opener) has proved very inspiring this week. There was some discussion this morning on Zoom about the value of the abstract image to spur us on our way.
The can opener includes gold metallic paint. The ferry picture is unfinished.
So that's about it for this week. Yet again a little exhortation to encourage those who haven't been joining in with the blog, to show us what I know you have been doing during these long months, and to join us on Zoom. It may be that you have found you have technical difficulties in getting into the meeting. The first page that comes up when you click on the link in Harriet's email may be one that asks if you want to join with audio and video, choose that you do, and you should then find yourself in the meeting. By the way, the invitation email should work for any week, not just the upcoming one. If you are having trouble, please email. If I don't know the answer (quite likely), I can probably find it.
