I am not sure that I should be posting this week's Art Group result. It falls into the category of ....lots of fun but a bit of a waste of materials......maybe!
The topic was 'Sweets, Cakes, Biscuits'
On arrival, it was clear that the school holidays were having an effect on the membership and we were only a dozen present. It was also clear that cup cakes and Bassets Allsorts were playing a big part in the mornings proceedings (not together of course).
I had already done a drawing of a small cascade of sweets, so was not in a position to change my mind, not that I really wanted to, anyway. I put plenty of wash on the background as usual and then painted in the sweets. This was as far as I got in the 2 hours that wqere we together.
Once home I realised that I could not leave it as it was. All the sweets were floating in a coloured background without anything to anchor them down.
A bit of thought and I decided to black line a grid on the paper, loosely linked to the edges of the sweets, and then using indian ink, I tried to create a semi-abstract board game effect. The finished result seems quite good fun, and if I was clever, I would be able to think up some appropriate witty title to go with it. Sorry, not my forte! So its simply 'All Sorts of Fun' Hope it makes you smile.
