After a hiatus of several weeks with no painting, due to the accident to my hand, concerns about my eyes and other family worries I finally returned to activity last Thursday. This was at the weekly Avon Valley Artists session with the subject of `Mystery Animal'. We had no idea beforehand what this would be but it materialized as photographs of a specific cat and dog.
We were rather light this week with only ten members present, why I don't know.
Only ten members!
Kath Wilkins at 86 our oldest member (?). That white band is a fault caused by my photography
This is mine - the early stages
The completed work - 16" x 12" waterford High White
The large painting at bottom right is pastel.
I was slightly apprehensive after doing nothing for weeks especially as I once read you needed to paint at least thrice weekly just to stand still. On that basis I expected to regress - hor far I wasn't sure.
