Richard created a revolution at the club today. At least he tried to re-create the effect of one, with his peasant women armed with scythes and axes (the plural here is for effect - there was only one of each), political posters and intense red everywhere. He even dressed up as a peasant himself (hardly his normal attire!) Besides marking the centenary of the Russian revolution, Richard urged us to get in touch with our emotions while painting. You will have to judge for yourselves how far we achieved that.
He had the lovely rebels, Emily and Beth, and armies of foot-soldiers detailed to attend to the battle ground (= set up the still lifes and other 'scenery'). The session began with Richard welcoming us to "The Art of Revolution" ...... and he gave us handout texts to put us in the right frame of mind (see below).
