OK before I go any further, I am not posting these paintings because I think that they are any good! This is the second week that I have attended the Monday afternoon painting session at the Sussex County Arts Club led by Kate Shields which comprises two 45 - 50 minute poses by a model who is encouraged to bring a prop with them (hence the microphone!). I reckon that this is just enough time to finish an oil painting and thus I guess the challenge has been set. I am hoping that over the coming weeks....months.....years, I will be able to hone any skills I may possess to produce some paintings worth exhibiting, whether they would be these or larger and more ambitious studio pieces I have yet to find out. I have absolutely loads to learn, I know that, but it is something that I have had in the back of my mind for some time and hope that the life drawing classes that I go to as well will help with my anatomy issues, proportions etc etc.
So hopefully the future postings will show a continuing improvement over time.....otherwise they will all be edited from the blog and I will pretend that nothing happened...as long as you conveniently forget as well.
