#7 of 86

Because I did so little painting whilst on holiday, I decided to push myself and rattle off a quickie at home tonight, so I put on a favourite LP, sat back and painted this during side one of the album.

Tom, this is lovely. I am impressed by your desire to paint one a day, wish I could motivate myself. Barbara

Thanks for looking Barbara. You really should try to do something similar - if painting is one of your passions. You don't have to paint every day (I don't), but by committing to display the results and ignoring the fact that the finished item is not what you hoped for, you will soon (hopefully) improve your technique and get closer to achieving your goal of becoming a better painter.

And once you start, its surprisingly good fun too!

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! :-)
