“Inspired” – Week 7 & Virtual Exhibition!

Hi everyone

This week was sadly the last lesson on the current “Inspired” course but we finished with a blaze of colour in these sunset paintings inspired by the work of Leonid Afremov.  What gorgeous pictures to brighten up those cold, dark, November nights.  

Don’t forget, you can now book for the January online courses.  Further information can be found on the Courses for 2021 page by clicking here.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the Virtual Exhibition tonight (Monday 30th November at 6pm – 7pm) and reviewing lots of the work you’ve created during this strange year of 2020. 

Here are some photos of this weeks work, for more photos visit our instagram page @leedsartgroup.

Cheerio!

“Inspired” – Week 6 & Virtual Exhibition!

Hi folks

This week’s task was based on the work on William Morris.  Another chance to use a wide range of colours but we also needed to show control and precision in our paintings to create that Morris look.  You all rose to the challenge once again and produced beautiful pictures.  Lots of material for our Virtual Exhibition next week.

If you haven’t sent me your photos yet and would like to show your work in the exhibition then please make sure you get them to me by this coming Thursday 26th November.  Here are the details again.

On Monday 30th November at 6pm – 7pm we will be holding our first ever virtual exhibition and all Leeds Art Group members are invited to attend and/or exhibit even if you aren’t currently taking part in any courses.  
 
Simply send me a photo of your work by Thursday 26th November and I will put together a slide show of all the work for us all to view during the meeting/exhibition.  Let me know via email if you want to attend/take part and I will send you the full details along with the Zoom meeting link.  Hope you can join us.

See you next week.

“Inspired” – Week 5 & Virtual Exhibition!

Hi everyone

This week we took on soft pastels – possibly one of the messiest mediums but worth it!  Monet’s classic “Japanese Footbridge” painting was our inspiration and gave us lots of scope for colour mixing and mark making.  Great work everyone!  Maybe we could even see some more of those pictures in……wait for it……the first EVER Leeds Art Group Virtual Exhibition!

So what if we can’t have a proper exhibition this year?  We can still all get together on Zoom to show our work.

On Monday 30th November at 6pm – 7pm we will be holding our first ever virtual exhibition and all Leeds Art Group members are invited to attend and/or exhibit even if you aren’t currently taking part in any courses.  
 
Simply send me a photo of your work by Thursday 26th November and I will put together a slide show of all the work for us all to view during the meeting/exhibition.  Let me know via email if you want to attend/take part and I will send you the full details along with the Zoom meeting link.  Hope you can join us.

“Inspired” – Week 4

Hi folks

We went monochrome this week!  After last week’s colour bonanza I thought it would be good to see what you can do with just black and white and you did not let me down!  You created these amazing drawings based on Maori patterns using just black pen.  Beautiful drawings everyone, great work.

Here are some photos of this weeks work, for more photos visit our instagram page @leedsartgroup.

See you soon.

Wendy
