I did sculpture at art school in the sixties and very little apart from a few bursts of life drawing since!
Started painting after retirement and keep experimenting with different materials but acrylic the easy option - dries quickly, soluble in water rather than turps and covers over mistakes!
Joined the club for life drawing and especially like the monthly Saturday sessions.
Love Paula Rego’s work and recently seen and admired prints by Eileen Cooper R.A. Would love it if the club did some woodcut workshops so I can have a go.
