The Society of Botanical Artists Exhibition – Plantae – at the Mall Gallery at the beginning of June was excellent. We are pleased to send congratulations to Yvonne Barbara Gemmell who won the award for graphite work which was donated by Strathmore Artists Papers. The work was Lichen Branches. (Pictured here)
Also paintings by Barbara Gemmell, Jeni Neale and Celia Scottow were sold at the exhibition. (If there were any more successes please let us know.)
Today’s meeting on 16th June was a painting day and although attended by a only a few we were able to get on with our projects. Diane Taylor told us about the workshop that she held at Warwick University on the 15th. After a short walk around the nature trail they were inside where Diane had the attendees doing tonal work with an HB pencil and then tackling a leaf. Well done Diane.
Next month we have two mini workshops for members to attend or watch or do your own thing.
