Still Life – Art class persimmons



New year and new art class.  The teacher is another Kate – Kate Finnegan who is also part of the 
Kaji Aso Studio

.    There were many returning students which is always a good sign for a class – some had been coming for 7 years or so.  We did a couple of exercises playing with the effects of paint on wet and dry paper and then into a still life of persimmons and pine needles.

I was fairly pleased with this.  Good colour and I tried hard to portray the pine needles with simplified washes rather than detailing each needle individually.

Not a complete success but I was happy nonetheless.   The evening was completed by a hearty meal of bangers and mash with James in Teele Square.   Not a bad day all round.
