December 29 2020 – Michelle Turner
The enthusiasm, support and encouragement that is fundamental to the group, has gone from strength to strength. The portraits created through the year have continued to develop and with their individual styles shining through.
The portraits have an energy and honesty, and with the emphasis on understanding and working with likeness, and seeing what’s really there, not what you think is there - there is a tangible life and humanity that emanates through the work. All experience and skill levels.
There is no pre-drawing or measuring with my process and many of our members have not painted for many years, often since school, yet quickly create artwork they would not have thought possible.
Several of the portraits presented here are after one or two initial sessions (1to1, 2 to1 and group workshops). The life and self portraits included. A mixture of in situ and online as has been necessary this year.
