Another contribu-tion from a member not able to come today, namely Frances. She did a 'very quick' mixed media sketch at home and she has included some marine paintings.
She visited The Castle Museum Norwich yesterday and was intrigued with the variety of styles prior to the workshop next week. She thought others might be interested.
Angela didn't go to Frances's session last week, but says she "put it to good use looking at composition, vertical and horizontal lines and tones. I have done a painting of the early morning light on my frozen pond and then I abstracted a piece of shoreline from a painting I did in Cornwall.
"My two efforts today, well I came home and darkened the tones in my pencil drawing which improved it but am not happy with what I did to my ink drawing. Adding colour was a risk but hey, it’s good to take risks and find things out!"
Emily Procner has asked us to let you know she is running a Saturday Mixed-Media at the Bank Arts Centre in March. If you are interested you can find further details on the Bank's website.
I wish you all a good week and look forward to seeing you in two weeks' time for the model and still life session. Noreen
