Hello everyone this is my first time, so bear with me. I have started my painting of Ms Booth and I thought you might be interested in the way I work. So, to quote Frank, this is my way. Having badly sketched Sarah, I then photographed her. I then play about a bit on the PC, mix up some images and get an idea of how I want it to look. (Fig 1). Then I sketch again (fig 2) before transferring to canvas. I will underpaint in acrylic before setting out with the delicious oils. Utterly madness, time consuming but I kind of get it all wrong unless I do this. Also attached is the still unfinished Martha etc . Oh golly, everything is in the wrong place!!! Sharon you'll have to give me a lesson. See you all in a mo. Karen xx

A painting I did after a painting course Wysing Arts in Cambridgeshire. Small and perfectly formed.

Mousehole, Cornwall 2005 oil on canvas I painted this last summer but love it! Memories of a very blustery day in October!

'Stage lights, Knebworth' by Sharon

I am fascinated by the random and beautiful colours and patterns that can be created by photographing lights, at night. I've many images which delight me where I have moved the camera to create shapes or obscure the stillness of the night. This image was taken at Robbie Williams concert, Knebworth, then manipulated later. Posted by Picasa

Untitled by Sharon

Can anyone think of a title for this? I'm blowed if I can. The colour mix pleases me and the plastic creases invite and trick my fingers to touch what is only a flat image. It is a section of an owl-themed totem-pole, made from carrier bags, which was one of the art pieces from Rhythms of the World. Posted by Picasa

Hello ladies If you're reading this, then you must have got my invitation to join our Blog, last meeting (well every meeting really) you keep saying "we need a website" then I get the sideyways glances, but I thought this option might be a worthwhile starting point(and we can all contribute and share info/ideas). It's fun (or am I not getting out enough?)

'MyHotel' Room by Sharon

Another attempt tonight at the figurative. Look how much our girly London weekend made us sparkle, Karen!!

Red onions

I added two bags of red onions to my shopping list this weekend, and here's what I did with them. I experimented with RAW images on my camera, but after taking various shots & formats on the lovely sunny Sunday we had, it was this JPEG version that most pleased me. I now have 21 (yes 21) red onions to eat (and you can only see 7 in my final image!!)

Date of next meeting

Wednesday 22nd February 8pm
