Another Faking Friday

10 Jul

Another Friday lunchtime session with the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook, doing a copy of a classic painting in an hour and a half. I’ve never been into painting so I decided to learn how to do it during the lockdown. I’m learning a lot about technique and also about not being too precious, to work quickly and not get bogged down in detail. It’s how I tend to do my drawings but it’s the opposite of printmaking, which is usually a painstaking process.

The lunchtime sessions are headed up by the painter Ed Sumner. They’re fun, what we need during a pandemic, they’re free or donations if you can afford to and the next one is a David Hockney.
