For our first session in 4 months it was absolutely wonderful to welcome so many of you to paint ‘en plein air’ at Chalk Church. Twenty enthusiastic members came along and we were so pleased to see each other that quite a lot of chatter went on all day! The weather was a little drizzly at first but after huddling under brollies and trees for a little while it soon brightened up.
Thank you for bringing along your own snacks, drinks and water for your brush pots and then taking everything home again to clean. It meant that whilst a lot of us were there, we didn’t need to crowd together at the beginning and end of the session, we could keep apart.
You will see from the photos that we managed to spread ourselves all around the grounds near the pond and also under the covered area near the barn, keeping a safe distance from each other.
There was such a variety of paintings produced in a few hours, either new ones started or finishing current projects. Some painted or sketched the church and grounds in front of them and others worked from their own photos or references pictures . It was such a good day and if you haven’t painted at the church before it’s hoped that these photos might persuade you to join us next month.
