Let's start with the inspiration photos for next week's artwork. They are from Jane who, after some discussion with Hannah about abstraction, has chosen a couple of them with that in mind. Whatever you decide to do, I know we shall all be pleased to see your picture(s) and hear what you have been up to, so please keep in touch.
Sally P has taken inspiration from the funny goat photo last week and produced six(!) versions, of which three are shown here:
(1) in charcoal (2) in watercolour and (3) in pastel. I think they're all great. Click to enlarge and view.
We didn't see Sally on Zoom this week, as she has been detailed to help her son with his house move.

Harriet is still doing portraits of her dogs, that she feels a close relationship to. The first one here is Chester, a rescue/rehome dog.
We had a good Zoom today, except for a few technical difficulties. We saw more of Les Br. this time (loved to see his L-plate in his place when he disappeared), but June came and went a few times, evidently because she didn't get the appropriate email with the link. Let's hope they can all be sorted out before next week.
PS (Friday) I should have waited a little longer before posting the above. Jane had had a hectic day and was a bit late in sending her excellent work in - see below.
Lesley has sent us two more attempts at a self-portrait. The first was painted in the morning. Lesley liked the shading but felt it didn't look like her. She realised at lunchtime that the face was too long so had another go in the afternoon. She thinks the proportions are better but is still not happy ...
