Quite a quiet session today, with several people away for various reasons. It was a ‘do your own thing’ day, so we all just got on with our own creations whilst having the usual good chat and banter.
One particular topic was the latest series of the ‘Great Painting Challenge’ currently showing on the BBC on Sundays. Most of us agreed that the standard of work produced during the competition days wasn’t necessarily representative of the work that the participants had been doing in their own time at home, and none of us would want the time restrictions or ‘mentor’ breathing down our necks while we work!
Proving that our members can produce most excellent work, Chris Locke presented David Mowthorpe with a portrait he’d produced from a sketch he’d drawn whilst David was speaking last week. It’s captured his lively style perfectly, but Chris has asked that he wears a plain shirt next time!!
