Last week’s meeting theme was still life, some interesting broken objects brought in to draw from. anything from a broken plant pot to a dog with 3 legs! This week we had plenty of room as so many were away which made for organising the objects much easier. In future Linda Wells has taken on the job of arranging the seating and displaying the objects for these sessions, thank you to Linda for volunteering her services.
No meeting on Good Friday
Don’t forget there is no meeting this week, (Good Friday) so we’ll see you all the next week (21st April) for an in-house demo on colour mixing which we hope will be of interest (and help) for some of us. Bring your favourite colour medium and paper to try out some recipes. Those of you who are more experienced in this form of alchemy please feel free to join in with hints and examples of your favourite mixes.
I’ve had an email from Wannock Club about their next demonstration on April 28th Sharon Hurst will be demonstrating a traditional landscape in watercolour, as Geoff Thorpe is unable to attend through ill-health. The meeting is on Friday 7-9pm and it’s £4 for non-members.
5 paintings sold in February
After the first of this year’s Last Minute Artists Pop Up at The Crypt I hope many of you got a chance to visit and look at the exhibits and especially the hanging system. It is very similar to the system we already use at the Golf Club so should make for a much easier hanging session for our own exhibition during ArtWave. It will be interesting to hear other’s comments on the show in general. I will be sending our contribution to the new hangers now (the cash raised from our hanging contributions at the Golf Club). On the subject of the Golf Club, we sold 5 pictures in total from the February display which is very pleasing especially to the artists concerned.
Have a great Easter Break – and enjoy your grand-children’s visits as I know many of you are involved (heavily) in child care over school holidays!
