118 of 86


16"x 12" ACRYLIC. Saw this image on the internet somewhere and decided to have a go at it because I liked the composition. I didn't, however, like all the greens but threw myself into it as a challenge. The first one came out looking like a pastel painting and I quite liked it! The second was just awful and then the third attempt was (to me) the best of the bunch. I didn't think so at first, but then it grew on me.

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! :-)
