Thanks to everyone who brought in their work this week to help create an informal exhibition of work produced over the past few months. It was interesting seeing how members had represented the same outdoor subjects during our plein air excursions this summer.
I was supposed to head a discussion on Seascapes. Luckily for the audience it was not a two hour lecture (not even I can talk for that long) but more like two minutes. I did however, put together a slide show of seascapes by famous artists, together with some books to look at. What a shame the 'Downs' doesn't' seem to have any large scale projection facilities otherwise we could project some local scenes and do plein air session indoors!
Subjects over two weeks
Seascape is the subject for two weeks running and is the first of a few sessions during the 2014/15 programme intended to be carried over a fortnight (and as the Friday 17th is marked down as a free session why not continue seascapes over a third week).
