Amazing architecture. Inside, well, it is a privilege to be in this wonderful building, but one does wonder about when the ceiling is about to fall in.
But, this morning we painted on. Ignored the creaks and groans of an old building. Normally we finish at 12. So we did, but this morning we adjourned to the Lighthouse Museum for lunch. Followed by us all putting up our first exhibition as a group.
Now we havent quite got to grips with the lighting. Within the exhibition space are some lighthouse lights, what ! in a Lighthouse Museum! which do create some magical effects, but not necessarily that good for displaying paintings! Bear with me, I aim to sort it. We did indeed have a lot of advice and help from some lovely people.
Some paintings are well lit, while others are a wee bit gloomy.
There are also some spaces to fill.
But, for a first exhibition, with few of us knowing what we were doing, its nae bad. And with a bit more tweaking will be just amazing.
I hope you hit on the pictures and get a better view as for a bunch of total amateurs I think our work is pretty awesome.
Back to talking about the weather. Well thats what we all do isnt it.
Here in the North East of Scotland you would think we would be used to the "SNA", thats snow, ok?
And its nothing like they get in Canada, or parts of the USA, or Siberia, or wherever, and even though I am in my sixth decade we still "Oooo and Aaaaa" about it.
