Latest Activities via the AVA (Avon Valley Artists)

My painting activities have been somewhat limited lately for reasons I won't go into but I'm still going to the AVA sessions and here are some of the paintings from some of the members and myself.

Peter Ward - an attempt at an abstract approach for the subject of  buildings, not one of my favourites

Yvonne Harry - actually pastels unusual for Yvonne.

A general view of some members work on the buildings subject

Peter Ward - Still like with flowers

Yvonne Harry- same subject. Yvonne and Jan were over an hour late due to a serious traffic holdup so their work was unfinished.

Clive Brotherton

Jan Weeks - unfinished for the reason given above.

Various still lifes

Walt Longmire from the television western `Longmire'

Peter Ward - I finished early one week so started on this one. Not very successful

 Model from the Next Ad in my newspaper. I rather liked this one but after viewing it the following day decided not to do any more, leaving me open to `the `unfinished' label

It's always good to see the work of your fellow artists Peter, and your own work there looks well on the way to a success.

Thanks Ann for kind comments.

Good portraits Peter and love the jug and flowers.

Peter Ward said...

Thanks Jan.

I really like the last portrait, it has a lovely balance between what is explicit and what needs to be filled in by the viewer.

Thanks Mick.
