Self Portrait.


Todays challenge was self portraits which proved to be challenging indeed! Many members agreed it was difficult to draw from a mirror... and also how hard it is to get a likeness. We were however all able to identify every member from their self portrait- so well done .



A massive entry with some very imaginative pictures ... well done to all and special thanks to Keith for his educational chat on DAME LAURA KNIGHT.



Todays zoom meeting had a good number of entries and was attended well. The entries covered a wide range of styles and interpretations! We had beautiful animal images - both whole creatures and some interesting close-ups.



Bubbles .. record entry and vary varied... with 21 people on Zoom this Tuesday another record broken. And new to SAG website were paintings shown by Helen, Rose and Steve. With David presenting his brilliant Art Quiz and Jane Green for getting 15 points... well done
