"Completed" Wales Sunset

Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa
I’ve taken the unusual step of completing the "rough" painting I first did for my Wales sunset, and here it is. I don’t normally finish a preliminary painting. My husband thinks it needs more reflections on the sea, though, so I’ll do that as well.

I’m getting ready to exhibit at the forthcoming small exhibition at our local church fair (Friday and Saturday 13th and 14th, 12.00-5.00, St John’s, Church Lane, Clowne). I have shown complete copies of them both before, so I am just showing the details I altered today now.

I have plenty of paintings from other group members and have spent several evenings framing my own ready. I am also using it as an opportunity to promote the group, as our membership is a bit low at the moment, so I will be printing off information leaflets, and getting the laptop ready to give a continuous display of paintings by group members. Later today will find me up in the loft, fetching down my card stand and browser, then finally setting up a contact book for potential new members to leave their details. It all takes quite a bit of time and effort, but last year it seemed to be worthwhile. People enjoyed the displays and I did get one enquiry from someone wanting to join the group, even if he never came. It also helped raise funds for the church, as Karen and Madge donated one or two paintings to be sold – and they did. It all helps get the group known a bit better.
Just a rough sketch so far

Who would have thought that a trip to the Zoo could give me inspiration? I have done this pencil drawing from a giant tortoise that I photographed while it was asleep – not that it did much while it was awake. A pen and ink drawing might follow. We visited Twycross Zoo earlier this week with the little one. It isn’t very well signposted, but was worth the extra half hour getting there. The little one now knows lots of new animals, and I got a leopard print scarf out of it.

At art group today, Karen and a few other group members had been to a wildlife park and she wanted us to have a group project of lions that they’d photographed. Our group projects are when we all paint the same subject at the same time, and then display all the results together at our next exhibition. Karen also had the idea of contacting the park to ask if they wanted to display our paintings, which seems to be a good idea.
