We had a very interesting day with Andrea Mossop, dissecting the appeal of some of the paintings hanging in the National Gallery. Her breadth of knowledge and ability to explain difficult concepts gave us a new insight into paintings we tend to give little time to because they are 'not our style.' And the workshop was held in a lovely new space, with lots of light. Thanks, Line.
Fortunately, the snow let up for a day, the sun shone, and we were able to hold our January Paint-In. Photos below - and apologies to those who left before I remembered that I needed to take photos for the blog. It was a happy day.
As a result of a commission from a visitor at the Before the Rush Show, Betty has produced a cheerful new collage...
We had our Christmas lunch at the beautiful Glen House yesterday - so lovely have a glass of wine or beer and sit and chat in the sun with artsy friends. But first, with Belia in charge of fun and games, there was a mystery gift exchange of small, unsigned paintings. Then the fun of guessing the painter...
And a group photo...
Merry Christmas, Everyone! See you next year.
The Golden Demo and Workshop about the use of various mediums, by Andrea Warren, was not only very informative, but great fun. Playtime!
Some TIFAA members will be participating in two great shows on the weekend of November 2, 3 and 4. Let your friends know! Think about Christmas presents (I know - earlier every year, but this is a chance to buy something unique for someone special!)
