From Sally P (where are T and L today?): Signs of Spring AND Something Fruity. "Had great fun. It's good to have this challenge even though the daffy isn't brilliant. For next week's subject (if you wish) how about 'The Kitchen'."
PS A painting in progress from Sally T has been added at the end.
There is also a further stage from Diana and three paintings from Harriet below.
June has been busy again with this celebration of spring and Mother’s Day.
Lesley’s piece was finished only yesterday. It is a landscape of the west coast of New Zealand from a photo she took on her trip there in 2016. It’s mixed media: acrylic painted on Egyptian cotton, then machine stitched, then collaged. She is gifting it (framed) to her travelling companion for her 70th birthday
Cynthia cannot send photos to us, but she put her work out in the garden on a chair for me to photograph and we had a brief 6ft distant chat.
You don’t need to be told the other one is Jane’s! It is almost finished - pen & ink (was originally on her calendar). So much detail, without losing the whole effect.
Another view of Noreen's garden in acrylics (she gave up trying to make it loose) and, above it, a watercolour sketch of just a small patch of the garden done yesterday.
Another welcome contribution, from Harriet. She has a lot of old tubes of oils, which she has been using up - and getting in a bit of a mess in the process, she says! She hasn't finished her picture of the hellebore yet as they have been busy with a veg. patch which will eventually be rabbit and dog proof.
