76 of 86


16" x 12" OIL. Allow me to introduce Mr Darcy! He is a Boston Terrier and belongs to my sister. The most notable feature of these dogs (IMHO) is the bulging eyeballs and I have accentuated that feature in a comical way. I spent quite a bit of time staring at this painting, wondering if it was finished. I feel that maybe I should carry on with lots more brush marks to give it a more "sketchy" feel, but I don't want to risk ruining it because my sister (and her family) like it as 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! :-)
