91 of 86


8"x 6" Oil. Was a lovely day last Sunday - well actually, it was quite overcast but there was no threat of rain and the temperatures were just right, so I decided to do some outdoor painting. With my trusty little 8x6 pochade box loaded with a simple 3-colour palette, I set off up to Winter Hill on the West Pennine Moors with my dog and found a suitable location.

In my head, I knew exactly how I wanted the painting to come out, but sadly, it didn't work out like that. No big deal, it just means I'll have to have another stab at it. And anyway, I had a really lovely time outdoors with my dog Evie.

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! :-)
