Although I think some groups may be restarting in September I am not going to reconvene the group until January. I need to wait and see how the virus progresses over the winter before I have the confidence to restart. I hope you are all keeping well and continuing to paint????? I cant wait till we all get together again.
Please try to relax through painting in these difficult times and I look forward to the time we can reconvene, Take care and stay safe.
A video that is excellent is one by Andrew Pitt, well worth watching at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVZr7Inpb6k Another new one I have just received can be found at http://www.andrewpitt.co.uk.
I have just been given a couple of sites you may want to look at
Take a University Art Class-Artsy.net
Art ala Carte
Our Drawing and Painting group is for all levels, all that is needed is enthusiasm! We are a friendly group who all help each other. It is very informal with everyone doing their own type of painting.
We also have visiting artists to give demonstrations a few times a year.
I would appreciate it if people could let me know if they are not attending for any reason PLEASE.
