84 of 86


15"x11" Pen & Wash. This is my beautiful girl, Evie. She's three years old and nutty as a fruitcake (but in a nice way). Her coat is a light brindle but I just didn't fancy darkening down this lovely glow. Not worth framing, but I'll keep it hanging around in the 'studio'. :-)

Decided that I couldn't leave it as it was, so I took it to the Art Club with me and worked on it with pastels until it was a more accurate representation of Evie's coat. It's still far from a perfect match, but Evie's coat is so very dark and that just wouldn't look attractive as a picture.

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! :-)
