SLOW ART 2019
The morning started with a NUDE (undraped) model who was fantastic with her poses. She has international training. The afternoon was great fun as we explored paintings. One of the most fun was to have everyone sit with their backs to the painting and attempt to draw the artwork as Barry Levine described it. New member, Carol Merrett, engaged the group by asking us to guess what her paintings were before she unveiled her acrylic textured paintings. One of the artists was an art teacher from Texas, Scott Serafica, who brought a beautiful oil still life which we paired with a cup of fragrant tea alongside the easel to complement the teapot in the painting. This gave the viewer a sense of smell (tea) about the painting. Really want to do this again next year.
