BP Portrait Award.................Not!

My submission has again been rejected for the BP Portrait Award. From 2,377 entries, 55 works have been selected. I think it would have been a miracle! Guilt now takes over at money wasted
.............about £150 altogether..................especially with the bailiffs knocking at the door!

Off The Page

Just a few of the exhibits.................

I went to the West Norfolk Artists Association exhibition, 'Off The Page'. It was very interesting and diverse...paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, textiles...........a bit of everything.
It would have been more interesting for you if I had made a note of the  poems/ prose that had inspired the pieces. Sorry. If you live here, go see it.

WA - Acrylic


Last week Paul Seymour came along to demo acrylic paint, showing us various techniques and styles. I had video-ed Paul but cannot figure how to upload it! Sorry.
 But they are on You Tube Here
And Brenda provided a scrumptious homemade cake!
A brilliant afternoon!
Then, this week we had a go ourselves, with the following results.
 Judith...a work in progress.
Seems to me that we all enjoyed that change of scene!

Life Drawing at Castle Acre

 I went to Castle Acre today for a life drawing/painting session run by Helen Breach, a fellow member of West Norfolk Artist Association. With wonderful model, Evie, and new friends to chat to I had a brilliant day.
To see what else I did please go to my life drawing blog, here.

Low Tide 42" x 32" Oil

I have added a few more glazes to this today. I really wanted to sharpen up the boats, but when I eventually found a photograph, it was really small which explains the undefined painting.
I also prepared another larger canvas........and sat for an hour wondering what to paint! 20" x 16" is my comfort zone, anything larger and I don't want to waste it.....and so I can't begin!
