As you can see here, my painting this morning was rather more prosaic. we are having a woodburner fitted tomorrow, and the fireback needed to be finished. So it was 'Black, all black!' for me today (hope some of you remember the hapless artist from the Fast Show!).
Noreen is in charge next week, so send her your pictures in good time for inclusion.
Quite apart from the mini flood in the front drive and the heavy rain that poured all morning here, I had other work this morning, as you will see lower down, and so didn't make it to the Bowls Club this morning. Thanks to Noreen for the scene-setting photos below, showing the still life that conjured rather better weather (hoping for a picnic maybe?), and the man himself, posing with a mirror - rather pensive in the photo. I also rather like the group chatting by the table, could be another pose for portraiture?
So first Avril, with an array of portraits - some interesting techniques here, and such a lot of hard work!
More portraits; two from Elizabeth, then two from Sally P, one each from Sally T, Ian C, and Jane. Then two from Jackie and two from Frances, which she wasn't very happy with...
Diana worked on a still life this morning that used elements of an old painting. She tried out different pieces before adding them in.
