Following on from our foray into portrait painting – we are extending to the figure, with help from Ruth Bitowski.
And this week we were working in pastel crayons – a new medium for our group.
Just in is Gemma’s striking Modgliani inspired self portrait. And before that, from Anne are two lovely self-portaits of the artist as a wistful young woman – to steal a phrase.
Then Rachel, looking very relaxed in an armchair, and Jayne’s painting of her father. A man at last – and welcome it is too!
Both Jayne and Mavis – who painted her mother with a timely poppy – were inspired by photographs of parents.
First to arrive was from Beth – followed by Cath’s – both of whom are looking very laid back! Then came Trish’s elegant pose.
Next was me/Jill with what started as a photo taken in Bodnant Garden and turned into a slighly scary woman with a pot plant!
