Sally’s still life set-up was inspired by an article in November’s Artists and Illustrators magazine, by Lucy McKie. Here are some photos taken from her article. She is a full time artist, working exclusively in oils, and has portraits and still life paintings in collections all over the world. She didn’t follow the route of a formal art school education, preferring simply to paint and learn from close observation.

At a more leisurely pace we also had portraits from John, Ian, two from Jane who said she enjoyed the drawing but felt she had not achieved a good likeness, and two from Elizabeth in her distinctive style. The last one is from Frances, for which she also used pencil.
A message from Lesley, who has asked me to remind everyone that it’s only 3 weeks to the EAG party so 3 weeks to finish your ‘40’ piece. Also, if you would like to participate, please find a poem, piece of seasonal prose, song/piece of music or any other contribution to our Christmas miscellany.
That's all for today. Model and still life again next week. Remember to send your work to Hannah for the blog.
