West Pennine Moors

I went for a walk a few days ago, over the West Pennine Moors, close to the Winter Hill TV mast. It's on my doorstep and is a beautiful area, especially on a lovely sunny early evening. Whilst up there, I did this small 8"x6" sketch. It has no detail and especially lacks the wind-turbines in the distance, which are a feature of this landscape. When I improve my painting skills, I'd like to attempt a bigger study of this area.

Update - tried putting in the wind turbines but they look a bit daft :-)

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! :-)
