I am more or less at the end of my Tenby Harbour scene now,after adding some boats and the front wall with foreground detail, plus a fewmore leaves to the tree.
I took lots of photos while I was there. The next painting might be St Catherine’sIsland, which is off the Tenby coast, and this will be done in pencil withperhaps crayon to add some colour. Thisis because the art group’s next project will be pencil drawing – occasionallywe have a project that involves using a particular medium rather than on aparticular subject. For example, in thepast, we have had pastels. I hope tohave at least two Tenby paintings ready for the Easter exhibition, and will also be adding this one to my art website (link at top of page) to sell for about £35. This next one should be done fairly quickly,as I find pencil is a fast medium to use, partly because it is so controllableand also you do not have to wait for it to dry.The other group members continued to progress with their workthis week, Karen, her large tiger painting, John his Irish terrier, andElizabeth, a Scottish loch scene. Sue hasplenty of bird photos as her husband is a keen birdwatcher (the featheredvariety) and likes photographing them. She was working on a painting of an owl with a border.
