gardens, ink & Ashton Gardens

Art Circle is drawing to a close for the summer.

We meet next week for the last time before we take a break.  We return in St Annes Library, 11 - 12.30 on Thursday, 7 September.

Today was a gardening day - sort of!
In the morning we worked at St Annes Library from images using ink on green paper and in the afternoon, ink on white paper in Ashton Gardens.  This seems to make the images look strange - not sure why - however the work was brill.

Well done everyone!

mine with more demonstration snippets
Also, the rose garden in Ashton Gardens is looking (and smelling) particularly beautiful at the moment.  It's worth making a special trip to visit.
