semi nude reclining, in red, framed.

Armed with a few henry asencio artwork pieces to inspire me, we headed down to shoreham.....

Well all 14 of us headed off to shoreham, most with scrapbooking supplies to keep them busy, whereas i packed up my brushes, paints and easels and with a handful of henry asencio paintings to inspire me, i headed off on camp.

check out this post to see my drafts, my finished artwork and the paintings completed by the few adventurous that picked up a brush for the first time.

I managed to finish off a handful of A3 size artwork pieces as well as finishing off the main artwork piece i wanted for my bedroom- the semi-nude reclining- my pencil draft can be seen here.
I started with my tried and tested flamenco style dancer....

Woman in Red dress, and Woman in red dress dancing.

then i commenced work on the main artwork piece once i was sufficiently limbered up....

And then on the last morning of the retreat, i worked on a fine looking young man with abs to kill. lol

I even found the time to let a few of the girls have a play with my paints, coaxing them nicely to be adventureous and they did extremely well ...

Overall, the retreat was fantastic- plenty of wine, food galore, games played and so much crafting was done by all in attendance, and now the clock ticks down to the next retreat in March 2012.
