Make a masterpiece from someone else's sketch!
On Friday the programme suggests carrying on from last week, ‘painting from someone else’s’ sketch’. I know not many joined in this exercise but you could always start this week instead. So do look out your sketch books and be prepared to swap them around for others to expand on in their own way. Jean & Jeremy swapped drawings and certainly made an attempt at it last week with interesting outcomes. Go on have a go – you might be pleasantly surprised!
Paint sets available
I am hoping to go to ‘Seawhites’ later this week and buy the paint sets that so many of you liked in our ‘try another medium’. Several members thought they’d make great Christmas presents for grand-children etc. So weather permitting I’ll bring them with me on Friday (please bring some money with you, I’m hoping they’ll be about £3 per set but they may be a little more.)
Art magazine cuttings
I’ve been going through all the old artist magazines that I seem to have accumulated, in an attempt to reduce their bulk, and I have now organised them into a large file which I will try and remember to bring with me to meetings. You’re welcome to browse and to remove articles – I just ask that they be put back when read, so others can read. I’m already finding the articles on oil painting very useful in my beginner stage of using the medium and I’m sure others like me will find articles they hadn’t read before but which could now be a help.
Well, having waxed lyrical on the weather I will now continue with the preparation of next year’s art programme, using ideas given to us by members for future creative subjects. If you have anything you’d like to see in the programme it’s not too late to suggest it.
Hope to see you all on Friday, Anne
