Graham 16" x 20" Oil WIP (maybe)
For the last meeting before the summer break we could do our own thing. This gentleman intrigued me with his facial hair and, of course the hat. I do love a hat as you know. He was a visitor to an exhibition I was a part of and I plucked up the courage to ask for a photo.

I was invigilating at the exhibition this morning, where I got chatting to several other artists and, of course, visitors. It was quite busy, but no sales apart from greetings cards.
Not sure if this work enhanced or distracted from my piece! It kept making me jump!
Awarded my prize, to keep forever, by Kit Price Moss who is the chairperson of the Association, and also tiniest member, I think!
This was my favourite, a painting of Castle Acre by Brenda Brown. I love how the complimentary colours resonate and glow and, I swear the painting moves within itself!

First view of the house.
Had to stop Roy starting work!
There is a painting here!
We went to Sandringham to see the Queen's Seago paintings, some of which she has on display this summer.
Seago's painting of Kings Lynn, which he presented to the Queen Mum to mark the occasion when the freedom of the city was bestowed on her.
A Venice Canal
Seago's painting of Prince Philip, painting. On show is also Prince Philip's painting of Seago. Brilliant.
These photos in no way do justice to Seago's work. Love him.

Linda 10" x 12" Oil
This morning I forgot to take my paint, so I couldn't continue with the coastal scene I had begun yesterday at the WA. I did feel daft, and Roy had dropped me off and gone off to Hunstanton. I didn't even have a scrap of charcoal or a pencil in my bag and so twiddled my thumbs until Carolann arrived. Luckily she had brought oils with her, gave me a colour and saved the day! As it happens I am quite pleased with my efforts.
The Wash Art Group are having an exhibition in St Mary's Church, Burnham Market, Norfolk from today til Wed 2nd July, opening 10am - 5pm daily.
Among the exhibited works will be these of mine.

I started off the afternoon with a demo, but....a bit different.....a paint-along-a-Sharon sort of thing.
I hadn't thought it through properly because there was a problem with everyone seeing the model and my drawing! We got there in the end. So my aim was to show how to portray a head with volume and structure.
Thank you to the members who sat for us...very brave.....it is not an easy thing to do.
