Saturday saw 18 eager members meet at Chalk Church, some who came last month and others coming along for the very first time to paint outdoors in the church grounds. We had about 10 minutes of very light rain, but after that the clouds melted away, the sky lightened and we had a marvellous day.
The grounds look so lush at the moment, the greens of the trees are really intense. As you can see we all managed to keep our distance from one another, yet be close enough for a good natter!
A huge thank you to everyone for all your donations to the church fund and I’m very pleased to say that your contributions total £101, a very good sum.
Some members carried on with paintings they’d started last month and others started something new, either from their own reference photos or of views in the grounds. Mediums used were watercolours, acrylics, oils, coloured pencils, sketching pens, graphite pencils and mixed media including inks and skeleton leaves. There were a few pictures of Grayson Perry, but they’re not shown here, they’ll be put on the blog at the end of the month.
