AGM and Demonstration – Dec 2017

The AGM went smoothly with reports of business from the Chair and various posts. The Chair and all existing committee members were re-elected. We also co-opted a new addition member to the committee. Jill Smith is taking on a new role as Deputy Chair in addition to her very committed duties. Please see photos and Angela’s report below.

An AGM then cakes and tea
A perfect start it seems to me
But I believe there’s much much more
Is that an upside down face I just saw?

Yes Rick was working from a face, identity unknown
With a black and white photo he worked on shapes alone
Using lamp black watercolour the shapes came in sight
But no one could get the the name of the person right!
Using charcoal he blocked in the dark side of the head
Adding burnt sienna watercolour, white and cadmium red.

Guessing who the person was became our quest
Then someone suggested it’s “Timothy West”
That was the right answer we all found.
So the face was turned the right way round
He then used pastels to complete the face
All the facial features were in the right place.

Just to get the Christmas spirit right
With a sweeping skill of red and white
He turned the image into Santa Claus
To an audience of rapturous applause.
