December Meeting

Our December meeting was a fun one. Maria, Corrin, Sue, Pam, and Sophia are showing off their great prizes.There were delicious goodies, thanks to Sophia and Corrin. How about posting the recipes? We shared a lot of information and tried some different materials.

Corrin tried out some neocolors while some of the other members worked on setting up and photographing a Christmas still life. We had so much fun that we are already planning next year's December meeting!

I just finished this 6" x 6" colored pencil on watercolor board. I used both dry and wet pencils and also the Icarus board which actually heated up the watercolor board pretty well. I really struggled with the grain. The board is too hard to get into the nooks and crannies and I was unhappy with the amount of specks.
