New venture – Alloa Art Club

September 25, 2010

With Stirling Art club currently having a lengthy waiting list, I’ve decided to seize the opportunity of setting up a club for Alloa and the surrounding area.

Alloa Art Club is in the very early planning stages but I am hoping we can set up a friendly and relaxed local group who meet on a regular basis to share ideas, advice and information on all aspects of fine art.  Depending on what members would like from the club, we could also look at arranging events such as demonstrations from professional artists, group outings to exhibitions or an annual exhibition of members work.

If this appeals to you, I’d love to hear from you.  Please contact me at to register your interest.


Where have all the flowers gone?

After a long summer break, I’m finally getting back to some drawing.  I decided to start with a lovely picture I took of my niece in training to be the next Joan Baez.  Still a little more work to do.  I’m using my favourite coloured pencils (Faber Castell Polychromos) on Kraft card.
