The introductory session for the local artists group was last night. I enjoyed some of their events over the last year, so I re-registered. Thirty quid. I might even be brave and put some art into their exhibition next year!
One of the big online art supply shops - SAA - had donated some vouchers and supplies, and was running a thing where you were supposed to paint a poppy and then post it off to them to be in a competition for the Armistice Day centenary. It was watercolours, which I don't usually do, and only four colours of paint (two reds, two greens). This was my effort. Given that it's the first time I have used watercolour paints since primary school, I think, I'm quite pleased! I liked the cheap brushes they supplied too, which was no doubt the intention. I may buy some!
