I missed last week's art class due to illness. One of the members very kindly sent me the picture we have to emulate (?) By Edward Hopper. An American Artist.
I spent most of the afternoon just drawing and trying to work out the roofs, angles of, perspective - not one of my talents - and how each object related to the next. I think I got there. Though I did have to get the Dawn Patroller in to work out for me some bits that I just couldn't understand. Like why half the lighthouse was missing, "Oh, now I see, the lighthouse is behind a house!" Not much hope for me is there.
During the weekend my four daughters were all together in Edinburgh. Plus grandchildren. Here are most of them listening to Grandma/ Mum holding forth. On Skpe. Are you sitting comfortably? Then we'll begin.
The Dawn Patrollers latest challenge (not an Edward Hopper) is to portray movement. This is for Fraserburgh Photographic Society's competition.
This is one he selected to enter, until I reminded him this was one I had taken. My lovely, lovely, ducks, now no more, from our previous house. Jemima and Puddleduck. Bloody good photo tho isnt it!
The above is one of those clever things you can do with a digital camera, showing all movements not only of the golfer, but also of the ball!
Fine pair of legs. Phwoar.
Three shots in one. Yawn.
The five above are his, he has to narrow it down to three. Fingers crossed for Thursdays competition.
Absolutely lovely day here in the North East of Scotland. Bit of frost first thing, then sunshine all day.
Perfect for meandering.
