Hasn’t the bright weather been a delight this last week? OK the wind’s a bit strong and the garden really needs rain but I can put up with that as long as the sun shines.
The forget-me-nots in the garden are just starting to go over, the daffs have gone so now I’ll be able to see the weeds instead. I’ve got runner beans germinated and 1 cucumber plant (out of the six I planted!) so it won’t be long till I can get some vegetables planted in the raised bed. Just have to remember to pick them once they’re ready. That seems an odd statement but the last couple of years David has gone on buying vegetables when we’ve had them ready to harvest which was a bit of a waste. Enough chit chat, what’s going on at the club this week?
Be aware of tonal values in your work
Friday’s session on the 1st of May is to experiment with painting in grey (Tonal painting) should be interesting, The idea is to help make you more aware of tonal values in your work. This is an area often overlooked by artists even the very experienced. Please do have a go, your effort will not be wasted.
Coffee morning is on Tuesday 5th
May’s coffee morning will be on TUESDAY again this month as again we have a bank holiday on the Monday.
We’re going to go to the Seaford Head Golf Club again from 10ish to 11.30/12ish. You’ll be pleased to know the coffee machine is working properly plus I have been assured there will be cakes to go with the coffee – as well as bacon butties All are welcome, members, other halves and friends – if you haven’t been before do come and join us. I can promise you there is very little art chat going on.
