The subject this week was `Transport', which allowed a wide interpretation. I chose to paint from a black and white photograph of the last hostile Apaches, the band of Geronimo and Naiche, taken in 1886. The `transport' connection of course are the horses. I shall cover this in a separate post as it is an interesting story.
You can see how empty the hall is!

Really we are just getting warmed up and hopefully will get fully into our stride next week when the subject is `Leaves and Berries'. Plenty of those about at the moment. The following weeks subject is `Abstract' so that will tax many of us. The annoying thing is that the weather over the last two weeks has been better than previously and it would have been perfectly possible, although somewhat windy, to paint outside.
Finally my tube of Quinacridone Purple had arrived via Robert and I gave a splodge to both Jan and Yvonne. I will be doing a post on this colour and hope to have Jan and Yvonne's input.
