Les introduced us to his multi-experienced, multi-talented friend Peter, who is a great walker. He wore the many layers of his walking clothing, along with leggings and boots - and that on what is supposed to be the hottest day of the year so far! People do suffer for art. We had two poses, first seated, then a standing pose after our coffee break, though most chose to do just the head. (There wasn't time to do it all justice.)
Les's still life set-ups were multi-faceted, giving a huge range of subjects, from his chiaroscuro figure in a box, through the macabre (a skull), nature (early spring blossom and fruit), bottles, pots, vases, boxes, boots ... What wasn't there?
Les showed us a painting he had done (see right), representing the chaotic emotions he felt when surrounded by huge buildings, traffic and noise - or something like that. You'll have to ask Les.
In the break, Sally T was supplying canvases (£3 each) on which to do a painting on the theme of the natural world - for a future exhibition at Earsham. There will be another opportunity to buy such a canvas next week (26th).
