73 of 86


15" x 11" WATERCOLOUR. Here's something I knocked out tonight in less than an hour. Quick sketch with big, loose, sloppy paintbrush to keep things spontaneous. The dog is called Frank and is a white Boxer belonging to some family members on my wife's side, living in Yorkshire. As you can probably guess, the painting is headed there :-)

Within minutes of posting this on FaceBook, I was deluged with messages asking me to paint their dogs. Couldn't believe the response!!!

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! :-)
