Plein Air – the past year

In September we will have been holding plein air groups for one year.

We have had lovely days, and some wet days and some cold and wet days, but we haven’t had to cancel a meeting yet. And every time has been marvelous to get out in this lovely shire and spend some hours sketching, painting, looking, talking.

And not all have resulted in finished paintings but some have, and have been shown in exhibitions.

Here is a collection of some photos from the spots, and some sketches and paintings based on the day’s work.

Portrait Group

We are considering starting a portraiture group for HAS members.

At this stage it would be one day a month, in Beatrice Taylor Hall and the suggestion is the Third Wednesday of the month, in the afternoon as it looks like this time is free. There will be charge for the hire and the model, but no tutor. Just discussion.

It depends on interest and ability to make the group, so we have a simple survey here to gauge numbers and collect feedback and suggestions.

The survey is now closed and the results are being considered.

We will advise on the decision and details soon.
