Tuesday 9 June: Hopes and Dreams - or Missed Opportunities
We have decided to have another paint-at-home day next Tuesday, 9 June, because we think that you are all enjoying the challenge, and a painting day takes people's minds off the continuing unsatisfactory Coronavirus situation. This time the theme is "hopes and dreams", and alternatively, "missed opportunities". Plenty of scope for imaging what you would like to do, people you would like to see, etc., or your thwarted plans, (including collage - Ed).
And if you don't fancy the theme, don't let that put you off doing something else and sending it in.
The destination for images this time is: firstname.lastname@example.org and we look forward to seeing your creations.
For those of you who want to get back to sketching the streets of London, a "virtual" sketchcrawl may be the answer. The London Urban Sketchers have got to grips with how to set these up, and their next event is on Saturday, 6 June, when the location is Little Venice. The USk have extracted various links from google's street photos, they put them on their blog page, artists click on the links and can pan round that particular location. You choose your view, and start sketching! Conveniently, the light does not change nor do vans park in front of the view. The usual throwdown displays of participants' work have been replaced by various social media links. Full details can be found here: http://urbansketchers-london.blogspot.com/2020/05/virtual-sketchcrawl-lets-draw-little.html This method of urban sketching is yet another step on for your artistic journey, maybe worth a go.
Finally, a new submission from Annie Faulkner.
