What a productive morning! Sally P. had to call time at 12.30 as we all still had our heads down, working.
We started with Sally showing us an array of brilliantly coloured paintings by Terence Clarke, to give us a steer in looking at the simple still life arrangements, and composing them to include a brightly coloured and patterned background.
She made a colourful model, first with a bright hat and scarf (and socks!), and then with a striking top, cuffs, cup of tea and a table, adding hands to the portrait, always a challenge.
I think I reflect the general feeling when I say it was a thoroughly absorbing morning. Many of us would happily have worked into the afternoon, and I think the results speak for themselves.
