Group Peacocks

In looking back at work over the last 18 years, since I started teaching back in 2002, I have been reminded how many beautiful paintings have been produced. And, this is the ones that we know about!!!

It seems very clear that, at this time, we should celebrate all of the people and paintings that we have worked with over the years.

I am drawn, once again, to the Group work that we have done in many groups, and in particular today, the Peacocks…

Below is a wonderful piece completed by the LTCBP Group in Oadby on a fabulous Saturday workshop:

Now, this is not the only time that we have worked on Peacocks and I am also sure that Groups do not always get the chance to compare notes. It, therefore, is appropriate to show this Group Peacock completed on another lovely sunny day:

The inspiration for this painting came from a not-so-silent walk in the Peak District at Birchover near Winster:

This is a small selection of Group work and I would like to put some more up on the blog in due course.

You must have fond memories of Group work that you have participated in over the years with us. Do please post up or drop us an email as we would love to recall great painting times with great painting groups.

We have posted previously about the Group Rat painted in the University of Leicester Botanic Gardens which you may enjoy if you haven’t seen before…

Thank you and happy painting,

Paul
