It was a beautiful sunny morning and we had a good session at the King Rufus (Eling Hill).
Philippa Goold made us very welcome. She had creative lots of artistic touches in the dining room along with her own paintings on the walls. Kate, Joan, Jean, June and Di stayed indoors and each chose to sketch a different feature. Harry and Catherine sketched outside in the garden. Harry drew the bust of a young Roman man and Catherine drew a charming group of everyday objects. A giant Buddha presided over the outdoor games area!
Philippa told us how she had studied textiles and yet always continued to paint. She showed us a fascinating painting which was an intricate pattern of rectangles inspired by scenes from her own life. It could even inspire us to paint our own autobiographical paintings!
Philippa invites all of us to drop in for a drink or a meal and to see her highly individual artwork in the dining area. All her paintings have a story behind them - so do speak to her to find out what they are.
The Adventurous Artists sketching group meets again on Friday 13th January. The venue will be announced at the next meeting.
