Don't Laugh!

If you think my current efforts are poor, wait until you see these, lol.  Since changing this blog from an "oil painting" blog to "all media", I thought I should post some of my older trials. Despite everything, quite a few are sold or have been claimed by friends/family.

1st prize in a local Art Exhibition

Hi Tom.
I found your blog on Peter Barkers blog. What a painter he is eh? I rather like your First one in this series and the fourth one up from the bottom. I understand that you love your Watercolour Box, I have a Craig Young box that I have had for god knows how long and I love it. I don`t do much painting in Watercolour now but do the occasional Watercolour sketch. Keep going Tom, and all the best.

These are great little paintings - some very successful compositions and really clean and sharp !

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! :-)
