EMERALD PASTURES (after Kevin Macpherson)

14"x 10" Oil. Couldn't sleep tonight, so because it's a Bank Holiday weekend, I decided to stay up and paint. This is the result. Not even close to what I wanted, but that's okay. I'll get there :-)

Is that all your work on the walls too? I love your style - so colourful. Might not be close to what you wanted but it's fab all the same.

Am trying to get to grips with watercolour and acrylics myself - haven't quite settled on a style yet though. We'll get there!

Thank you for your kind words Carmen - I appreciate your visit to the blog. The big painting in the upper-left corner is one by my friend Brian Waddington. He's a great painter with MANY years experience.

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! :-)
