Avon Valley Artists - Fruit or Vegetables or Both

This was the subject last week at Thursday session. A better attendance with 13 present and a subject most people are happy to tackle. I had to leave slightly earlier due to my six month hearing aid checkup so took photos of my fellow artists working, rather than the finished paintings.

This was my setup

My initial simple drawing. I've enhanced it so the lines are much darker than actual.

The finished painting - Fruit 16" x 12" Centenaire 140lb (300gsm) not

Pat Walker - strawberries

Pauline Vowles -artichokes

Yvonne Harry - rhubarb 

Jo McKenna -beetroot (?)

Terry Twissell - gourd and onions

Jan Weeks -gourd (?)

All in all an enjoyable session with next weeks subject - animals.

Hope your hearing aid check up went okay Peter. Lovely to see works in progress here, and although I like all of them, I have to admit those artichokes are great!

Yes just routine Ann. Thanks for comments.
