Everyone completed a flower painting, which will be proudly hung on Grandma Diane's wall at home. Some members even finished a second painting. There were lots of laughs, a fabulous lunch was served by hostess Kay, and fun was had by all.
|The birthday girl seemed to be having the most fun of all, of course! Since she was used to oils, not acrylics, it was a whole different experience. She tells me they just don't blend nicely like oils!|
|Hostess Kay is starting on her second daisy painting. She created the lovely flower pins we all wore for the day, in honour of Grandma Diane.|
|I was amazed at how quickly everyone chose a flower composition to work with. |
Each person had a different colour problem to work out. For a poppy, we had to make a translucent red for highlights, not a pink red. Mixing a lovely orange did the trick.
Here are the finished paintings: You can tell we are all pleased with the results. (Even the dog!)
