Diana provided a full table for the still life on the theme of Harvest, which led to ten pictures.
Next week, for those who have signed up for it, we have John Shave's workshop on Landscapes in oils - see Sally P's message. The following week it is Lesley's printing, but there will be space for those who don't want to print but do their own thing.
Next week Diana will be doing the honours. There will be a still life as usual. As for a model, Diana has difficulty with long sitting so it is hoped two or three volunteers will take turns to sit.
It was good to get back into our stride in the Bowls Club and welcome back a number of members who we don’t see so much of on our summer days out. There was quite a crowd of us - with plenty of chat in the breaks, but huge concentration otherwise.
This week the still life and model were provided by Hannah, who herself posed as the model. The new arrangement with just one still life set up and separate space for those doing their own projects seemed to work well. The still life table gave us a child’s eye view of a domestic situation with lots of teddy bears and other toys around. Some interesting pictures emerged, which I think you will agree.
Next week we have Richard Kite doing the honours.

Sally Procner, at the end of her first year as excellent Chair of EAG, got through the agenda very smartly, including delivery of her Annual Report (click here), thus concluding the AGM at 10.35.
Our membership is full, our finances are healthy, programmes running smoothly and everyone seems very happy. It was also a happy occasion to celebrate with chocolate cake the four active members who passed their ninetieth birthdays this year: Carolyn, Freda, Cynthia and (in absentia) Dorothy. With two other members over ninety now, I declare that art is good for longevity. Happily we also have lots of much younger members.
After the celebration we proceeded to Show and Tell where members were invited to bring their best painting from the summer and tell us something about it. This is so interesting as everyone has a different story - about where it took place, what they tried to express, the technique or media used, and more.
Lesley Buckwell's work was on a different scale, an exotic plant in her garden, with huge blooms and strong fragrance. A stark contrast to Sally T's pen and watercolour study at the Mid Suffolk Light Railway Museum, and Jackie's gentle watercolour of the garden where she was staying in Turkey on a painting holiday.

Next week it's the Bowls Club with Hannah presenting still life and model.
