57 of 86


Tonight I had a go at one of Anne's pieces from her blog. On it, she kindly provides a simple outline sketch to make it easy to draw and then a series of photos showing the work in progress. As usual, good artists make it look so simple, but it rarely is! I got bogged down with this one and the background colours went all over the place. 11"x7.5" Watercolour, Pen & Wash.

Same night I also got a text from my sister saying she was having a go at watercolours. She sent me a tiny image via phone and asked me to have a go, so I had a quick doodle and here it is...

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! :-)
