27 Oct 2020 Rosemary: I love the way Jan has used light and shade in her portrait so I thought we would remind ourselves about the elements that make up a picture - light and shade, line, shapes and most of all - composition. Purely from your imagination, and under the title Still Life or Garden or Landscape, create a picture thinking about the components above. No worries about perspective or photogrpahic accuracy just excite us with your individuall take on this.

12 Oct 2020 This week's projects from RosemarySteve's lovely picture is an inspiration for us to have a go at portraiture and led me to suggest a rather unusual challenge: when you pause your television programme, particularly during a drama, you get wonderfully expressive actions and facial expressions. Quickly make sketches of the bits that interest you (preferably not when someone else is trying to watch TV!)  and see if you can create a picture from them. Notice the eye levels and light and shadeAlternatively, do some collage (easy, no paint needed!). I cut out bits of colour from one magazine (see photo below) and now I really want to make something out of these shapes. Remember, the photographs you send will look great in their reduced form.

 4 Oct 2020  The project for this week from Rosemary. "We have heard a good deal recently about social distancing so the theme is "Distance". Abstract or representational. Remember things get small in the distance and there is less contrast between things".
