After Sally's drawing is a picture from Les Bragg. I like the changes of light within the work. Indoors and outdoors?
Lovely crocosmia from Jane.
Avril wasn't sure how successful this painting was, as she doesn't often paint flowers, but I think the photograph indicates how well she tackled it.
Jackie says, 'Our local Thatcher has harvested his straw and piled the bundles into shocks. These make a wonderful rural scene and I hope to do more studies of them at the weekend. I've also done some doodles just for fun. It's so lovely living here especially at harvest time when the fields are clothed in gold. Am missing everyone and hope to see some of you soon.'
Last Thursday, when I had finished my drawing, (Hannah says) I packed up, turned round and walked about five steps. I then saw what would have been the perfect subject for me - a view down a footpath, with a fence to the left, that I had had my back to the whole time! So I put everything down again and took a couple of photos. This is the final outcome, oil on canvas...
All the way from Brittany, Frances has sent 3 different images: A photo of a swallowtail butterfly, and one of the shutters painted with the same butterflies as inspiration, and her grandchildren on the beach...
Lesley's week has been too busy, so she sent a textile piece she made last month, an imaginary landscape that she is quite pleased with: snow dyed sky, monoprinted background, with machine embroidery and hand painted flowers and leaves collaged on top.
Late addition from Harriet, sketches from a visit this week to Saltburn, North Yorkshire, where it was very cold (!). The cliffs are supposed to be the highest in England.
Finally, a reminder to keep sending work to me (Hannah) for the time being. Either Noreen or I will let you know when things change back again.. I am sure everyone wishes Noreen well as soon as possible.
