#8 of 86


Tonight I went to a friend's house to paint outdoors in the garden and took a book with me that I'd recently bought called Painting Missouri by Billyo O'Donnell. If you like Plein Air painting books, you simply MUST buy this one! Anyway, I chose a painting from the book and had a go. Really enjoyed doing it but it's a far cry from Billyo's original.

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! :-)
