The forecast was possibility of rain this afternoon. Instead we had bursts all day.
What we needed is Chris’s weather forecasting stone - See middle picture!'
Here in darkest Norfolk it rained this morning, sometimes quite heavily, and since then it feels quite tropical, with warmth and high humidity. I have been painting in my studio, so I could ignore the vagaries of the weather.
'Sarah provided us with morning coffee and tea and cake in the afternoon and the offer of drawing/painting indoors with even a still life being offered.
'A quick contour of lillies, a semi contour of the milk churn and roller, a semi contour of rhubarb leaves and the a more detailed drawing of the house from the swimming pool.( Which no one was brave enough to go in this year) I am pleased with the house picture. It is not something I would normally tackle but after the huts at Sizewell, I thought why not!
Angela didn’t make it today as she had to go to Norwich, but she says, ' I have finished a little painting inspired by last week and one from my garden that I’m not sure is finished yet but this is where I’ve got to!
'Hope everyone is good and hope to see folk in a few weeks. I am stewarding at Raveningham Sculpture Trail with Dave the next two Thursdays.'
'Quick sketch of apple tree in rainy conditions!
One side of Old Hall Farm
View of the house from the swimming pool, which we sadly did not use. Sunny and hot on our way home!!! Photo of sketch more crooked than actual sketch!'
Thoughts on Exhibitions - responses needed!
9 days ago I sent emails to all 29 members who use it, those who don’t are being contacted by phone.
I was hoping for thoughts not only on this last, but also previous exhibitions and what members would like to see happen in the future.
So far I have only had 10 replies!
The deadline of the end of the month is fast approaching: If the working group is to make decisions which reflect the views of members on exhibitions we need more feedback!
