 Alan Langford gave an expert demonstration painting two heavy horses in watercolour at our April meeting. He completed the painting from scratch while describing his process and keeping us all entertained. His life has been devoted to illustrating and painting with horses being his passion.

Helen, Betty, Tony and Di chatted online via Zoom. The theme of the month was CIRCLES.

Betty had painted a coastal scene with a circular island and a painting with circular leaves and flower spikes. Tony showed computer-generated spirals. Helen showed an art project in several formats: a large painting of a circular stone with a hole, a line drawing of the textures, a close-up painting of the textures, a stylised combination of ideas and a painting on fabric using dyes and wax. She intends to use the fabric as a studio curtain. Di showed a black and white design with 3 circles all inspired by glass objects.

The group is taking a break for a few months and will meet again in September.

 We had sunny weather for our sketching session at Eling Creek. Since is was the school holidays, we had fewer artists. However Josie, Eileen's daughter, took part as well. Most of us sketched the opposite bank. The sound of children playing accompanied our efforts.
