11" x 7.5" LINE & WASH. This is my second attempt at portraying the beauty of Clovelly. This time I looked at a different part of the village and included two view. I was quite pleased with the sketch but less so with the washes. I tend to go in with my eyes shut instead of thinking about what it is I'm trying to achieve. Ah well.

Very nice pictures. I was up there last year Morris dancing. I think you used your time rather more efficiently! Your painting is really coming on a storm, well done.

Thank you very much Michael - I appreciate your kind comment :-)

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! :-)
