#3 of 86

Went to the Art Club tonight and knocked out a couple of 8x6's to try and play catch-up. I really must try to paint more regularly. As with the others, I have made no real attempts to do anything worthwhile here - it's merely to get me started and used to painting with this new medium. Quick, carefree brushstrokes and careless aim. Just noticed how daft that lone tree looks. Ah well!

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! :-)
