Lesbury Village Hall

A little gem at the heart of the community

On the 15 April our own Jan Calderwood gave us a workshop about the potential problems when painting from a photograph. In addition to talking us though the pitfalls she also demonstrated her case when painting two different scenes. Both scenes were unfinished when we broke up. However the picture of the lion on the previous page is the finished article so you can see for yourself the difference.

This first link goes to Jan’s handout re pitfalls.

This second link goes to a summary by Jan via an email to us.

This Lion is the finished painting. Click on it for a larger version.

Many thanks to Jan for her brilliant workshop.
