41 & 42 of 86


This morning I was rooting around the internet looking for sources of inspiration (as I do) and came across a couple of paintings that I fancied having a go at. They are both 8x6 inch panels, painted with water-mixable oils. There was a 50/50 use of brushes and palette knife.

I must admit to liking them both and I am going to play with this style a while longer to see where it goes.

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! :-)
