|Carew Castle - Sue and Maggie's chosen subject|
Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa
I have nearly finished my Canadian picture now. I just need to add some grass, trees and bushes to the left hand corner, and the water and reflections need more work.Several of the group have given me paintings to show at the forthcoming open day at St John’s church this Saturday, 1st October. I will also take some leaflets along for anyone interested in joining or finding out more about the group, and publicise the website and this blog and the cat one too. If any readers want to meet me in person, I will be on the cake stall that day. I wonder if anyone will approach me after reading this. I have made some carrot and orange muffins, which were very popular at the art group’s Easter exhibition, and frozen them (they freeze well).
At art group, Maggie and Sue had begun the Tenby project, both painting Carew Castle from the road side looking towards the tidal mill. Maggie has given the sky her classic "dark and moody" treatment, reminiscent of her Cley Windmill style. I have also sent the photos to Jim and Hayden, our newest members, and will be interested to see which of the group try painting Tenby – it’s a very photogenic place. I suspect Sue or Maggie might even try more than one painting on a Tenby theme, as they both work very quickly.
