Free painting and Facebook news !

Eleven paintings to look at here and there was much talk about the eagerly awaited Big Painting Challenge on the BBC last night. Mixed reaction but pretty fair to say that landscapes don't appear to be most competitors favourite subject !

Maybe next weeks portrait programme will be more impressive. 
No matter , we have some landscapes here that are impressive as well as a few other genres.

So, Facebook ! 
I've created a page for us and surprise surprise it's called .....wait for it.....monk fryston art club. 

So go check it it those that have Facebook and request a fried request so I can add you and spread the word.

Barbara Phillips workshop

Our very own pastel expert Barbara who pants pet pastels in her sleep gave us a demo and chose a cockerel as her choice of subject.

Some chose to follow the technique and apply that to another subject and others did their own thing. 

It was very well received and much learned. 

The first few photos are examples of Barabara's work and then a few cockerels and other efforts.

And now onto this weeks affords
