BIRDS & ANIMALS ON A FEBRUARY AFTERNOON

Our February Art Extra afternoon workshop was able to take place but we had to get past the road re-surfacing outside Calmore Community Centre.


This month, by chance, most of us drew our inspiration from birds and animals, except for Kay with two seascapes


Ali enjoys drawing wildlife using coloured pencils.


Linda practiced painting a cat in acrylics.



Helen paints and draws from nature with texture details. 


Kay worked on two seascapes and Lesley used watercolours for her penguins.



Di employed tonal values for her pair of mallard ducks


Henry loves colour and used it freely in his portrait of a dog. 


We use the time to practice pictures or work on finishing a picture. There is always time to chat as well!

GARDENING & GLASS: STILL-LIFE IN JANUARY

Lots of concentration needed to represent the two still-life arrangements at our January meeting!




Many thanks to Sue Canton and to Mary Maskell for bringing and arranging all the items. 
























People rose to the artistic challenge
Next month - a person in costume. Will it be easier?
