WELSH VALLEY

Well, I said I'd do it, so here's the first pathetic attempt at oil painting. Boy, I really struggled to post this! I was gonna keep painting until I got something I wasn't ashamed of, but that's not the idea of this blog, so look and laugh.

Good for you Tom! You're on your way! This has got a good color harmony to it and I like that you put the brush strokes down visibly confident. Great start! I look forward to keeping up with you and your blog. :)
And thanks for all the kind words in the post below. I really appreciate it. It's so nice to hear that my blog may help/inspired another beginning painter like myself. The journey is worth it!

Our Own Art-Club!

Each Friday we go to the local Art-Club in Horwich. It's a thriving club with a broad range of people of all ages and skill-levels. Apart from the regular painting sessions, we have many professional artists visiting us to demonstrate their skills and to run workshops.

But sometimes, it's nice when just a few friends get together mid-week too, and so here we are in Simon's "studio", benefitting from the skill and experience of his father, Brian Waddington. It looks a bit cramped in there, but we were just huddled together to fit in the photo frame :-)



And you can drink beer in this club! :-)
