You are invited to bring both the photo and the painting you completed based on the photo.   Please place both of these items on the tables at the front of the room so other members can take a closer look at the end of the meeting and be inspired and impressed.

SPEAKER: Jo Kinross

Jo presented us with her story of developing and experimenting with sustainable art materials. In some of her most recent work, she has made botanical pigments for making watercolour and oil paints. Her talk was both entertaining and informative, particularly for artists interested in making their practices more sustainable.

Below are two examples of the works Jo has created and showed our Group. The first is a collage using Indigo paint and layering paper to give a landscape. The second is a book created using plant based inks and graphite.
