If you look at Frank Bingley’s blog about painting,’ en plein air’ at Kibworth Post Mill you will realise what a great evening out for Club members it was. A little disappointing that only four of us turned up and one hopes for more next time. We were joined by two non-members that had read about the event on the website.
The last time we met, in July, the demonstrator couldn’t come because there had been a sudden family problem for him. We were indebted to two visitors who rescued the evening by bringing a video by Tim Fisher. He was showing how to paint in the open air using coloured pencils, colour sticks and ink pens that bleed when touched with a water carrying brush. Since I had all of the equipment he was using I decided I would try his technique when painting at Kibworth Post Mill.
I have added the painting here, still on my board, to show my effort in the two hours we had. And if you look carefully you can see Frank!
