Self portraits – part two!

Following on from our Modigliani-inspired foray into portrait painting – we’re extending to the figure, with help from Ruth Bitowski.

This week we’re working in pastel crayons – a new medium for our group.

Just in is Rachel’s self-portrait looking very relaxed in an armchair. Then Jayne’s portrait of her father. A man at last- and lovely it is too!

Both she and Mavis – who painted her mother – were inspired by photographs of parents.

First to arrive was from Beth – followed by Cath’s – both of whom are looking very relaxed! 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!
