"So much choice" says Jackie. "But I decided to spend half the session on still life, the second half drawing Hannah who was crocheting at a furious rate using jewel coloured wools." Thanks to Jackie for the photo of Hannah with the crochet work (above), as well as for sending us a stage in Les Bragg's painting of a hare.
Carolyn has used an antique 1848 sewing box as the subject for her still life drawing this week, using Inktense pencils with added water. Says she has struggled to get the perspective right. (I thinks she has done pretty well, perhaps better with the lid than the top of the box itself. N.)
Richard has provided us with a drawing done earlier.
He also offered members lots of freebies - brushes and other implements he no longer has any use for. As Sally L says below, "Thanks Richard!"
These are from Lesley "The top one is the acrylic piece posted on the blog earlier. I’ve done some work to the sky and foreground field to the view across the fields to Eye and added the church. The second piece also acrylic, is a slightly different view. I’m reasonably happy with the mood portrayed (cold frosty morning) but I am struggling with finding something fine enough to do foreground trees. Or I could just leave them out!"
Emily is in charge of the Model and Still Life next week and Hannah wil be doing the blog, so please all send your artwork to Hannah. And remember to ask someone else to photograph your piece and send it in, if you can’t do that yourself. We’d really like to see 100% of work done put on the blog.
Till next time, Cheers, Noreen.
