What a change to the view from my studio!
Today I ventured out in the snow to my painting group, a short distance from my home. Instead of the usual contingent of about fifteen there were only five present and we all left early as many side roads become very slippery late in the afternoon - cowards one and all!
I'm working on a painting of a Japanese lady
but brought my watercolour art box in my rush to get out instead of my acrylics box. Stupidly I added some gouache into the lady's clothing and it looks awful (the pink bits at the bottom of the painting) so I guess I'll paint over it with acrylic later. Bit of a wasted trip but the tea and biscuits were nice.
I enjoy the stimulation of working in a group and the same applies to Ceramics - where I'm headed tomorrow - weather permitting.
Another little art job about to be done
is adapting my grandson's birthday card into a Batman birthday card (Batman has taken the place of Fireman Sam and Bob the Builder in his affections).
Here is the original.
And here's the new card.
Hope he likes it.
