Friday's demo

Very informative, really explained what he was doing well - I could follow him!

Although I have no wish to paint in oils, I thought he gave some very good tips for painting and composition.  An interesting approach to colour.

A really useful evening!

BAS Demo. evening

Robin Mackervoy Still Life in OilsThe BAS programme of demonstrations kicked off by scoring a goal, probably more than one. Robin Mackervoy's still life in oils was a masterpiece of instruction and brushwork. Everyone, from novice to pro., must have gained from such an outstanding player. His closing word, "I have enjoyed myself," was something that we all need to remember. If we are not enjoying slapping paint on, why do it?

Hockney Exhibition

 Whats all the fuss about young Davids work, give the kid a chance, its not bad for a four year old.


The Easel

What a day! Packing envelopes and getting the right labels on them has taken hours to complete. Reason? Trying to ensure that the right people get the newsletter. All the paid-up members will get their copies. People who were formerly members and whom we know are not able to join this year will not receive the newsletter. Those who have been members and who are known to continue to make art but who have not yet paid their annual subscriptions will receive copies with a gentle reminder. Some of the latter will pay their subs.

The Royal Academy and Hockney

On Friday this week (24 Feb.) I plan to see the show. I usually get to the RA by about 11 am, which gives me plenty of time to see as much as I want. Having seen so much on TV and read so many reviews, I have no idea what to expect. Will I be thrilled or disappointed? Laughter or tears? Perhaps I'll bump into somebody I know?

What a wonderful day!

The British Library and Royal Manuscripts: super. It was a pity that people spent so much time with the first few exhibits and thus clogged up the works. I was too impatient and jumped on to the exhibits that had few if any 'students' and enjoyed freedom of movement and view. The free electronic commentary was a joy. A huge exhibition, too big for me, so I bought the lovely catalogue (softback) to enjoy at home and then went to the Mall Galleries and the Pastel Show. Another good 'un. Home by 4 pm to find that The Easel had arrived to be mailed next week, I hope.
