53, 54 and 56 of 86


This week's competition is a Scottish scene and rather than jump in head first, I've decided to do 3 paintings and then choose one to submit. These are the first two. Not really happy with them, but getting there.

 1st attempt

2nd attempt

Final attempt.

I like the style of the second one - looks like it's from a journal but I wasn't sure that it would appeal to everyone, so I did another and submitted the 3rd one.

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! :-)
