We finally managed to gather together in Anne's welcoming venue with its views, & generous tables/chairs - just like before covid- well, nearly. Four enthusiastic artists were given a simple exercise of  painting an exuberant sunflower first, just to loosen up, scatter salt & use cling film with varying results but all pleasing to the eye.

Then we launched into an equally simple attempt to copy a landscape with blue sky, mountains & some stunning autumn trees/leaves as a frame. We had some real leaves in front of us to verify those deep reds, & brilliant oranges & yellows, & everyone ended up with a pleasing picture at the end of the  afternoon- three hours just flew by.

The plan is to continue like this every week if possible, with the inevitable change of venues when needed- watch this space.
