We had a rocky theme exploring rocky shapes and imagining the carboniferous world that shaped the rocks below the Glasgow and Dunbartonshire area.

Rocky places was our starting point and we went off in several creative directions from there, so it was an expressive, natural and experimental night!

Into September, it is gradually getting more autumnal and the temperature has become cooler and crisper.

In Clyebank art group we had a couple of foresty themed nights, enjoying drawing pine cones, leaves, tree fruits and berries, a cute hut and other things! It is great to see folk express themselves and work on their own ideas and pieces and not always follow our suggestions!

Having fun with mixed media and paints at Clydebank art group

Having fun with mixed media and paints at Clydebank art group

The sunshine was still very strong at the Centre81 when we started to doodle with pencils and pens, having a bit of a relax while drawing some natural patterns and looking at the textures and shapes of objects such as pine cones.

We continued the tree theme from last week into painting using different watercolour sets and oil pastels, the feedback was really positive about the mixed media combinations and colours we tried out.

It was interesting thinking about the spaces between the trees and the characters and movement of them.

Exploring the world of trees at Clydebank art group

Exploring the world of trees at Clydebank art group

Clydebank art group is back after the summer holiday!

Exploring the world of trees at Clydebank art group

We had a meditative session drawing trees with the late summer sunshine flooding into the art room. Using varied art materials, we drew different types of trees in an atmospheric way… with a poem or two to help stimulate our imagination and inspire us.

The view out the window of the silver birch tree in the Centre81 community garden helped us, with its rustling leaves and purply pink silvery bark shining against the leaves and sky.
