2nd Monday Critiques, December 10, 2018

At our last critique of 2018, we had some very lovely work to view, as usual.  It's so nice to be able to sit with a group of artists and share ideas and offer positive, encouraging comments, along with suggestions for making our images stronger.  I think we all benefit from the feedback received at these meetings.  If you have not been to one of our critique groups, please make that one of your New Year's Resolutions.  We are always happy to see new faces and new artwork.

2nd Monday Critiques, November 12, 2018


Photos are from our most recent critique.  The first half of our session was spent critiquing the completed painting that Carol Stevens' had begun at a previous session.  Then, using suggested guidelines, we critiqued our work.  We have some exciting things coming up, so be watching for a notice in the near future.
