Resuming our portrait sessions with a challenge
As a change from our usual practice of sitting for ourselves to paint, we had the benefit of a professional model for our September session
Lenah, dressed in traditional Kenyan headscarf and accessorised with a hand made Masai, beaded necklace – was a real challenge of detail and something entirely new for the group.
And of course, a full studio of artists rose to the occasion, producing work in oils, acrylics, watercolours, gouache, pastels and pencils. Never let it be said we don't experiment!
The afternoon sped by with some really interesting work and such was the enthusiasm by members, we’ll look at planning another session with Lenah in the not-too-distant-future.
Meantime, if you’d like to join the group, the next session is planned for Monday, 15th October – further details from
John Washington firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to know more - newcomers most welcome.
