Our first session of the year was attended by 16 artists including three ladies who came along to meet us to see if they would like to join the group. We hope they enjoyed the evening and want to return.
The suggested subject of ballet was very popular but many of us found our ballerina’s legs and feet difficult to draw in the correct position as their joints looked too flexible. Watercolours, acrylics, coloured pencils and pastels were used and the Pantone Very Peri colour was added to a couple of pictures in the tutu or sash colour. Some artists started painting, or continued with, their own subjects.
Most pictures are works in progress and will be finished at home or at the next session on Saturday 22nd January. It was a great start to the year, thank you to all who came along, long may our sessions continue!
