Art Group

Hankerton Art Group (HAG) was started in April 2015 by Craig McCallum, membership is open to anybody, experienced artist or beginner, who just wishes to spend an afternoon with other enthusiasts enjoying a natter and a cuppa, whilst doing some painting or sketching. We usually meet in each other’s homes fortnightly on an informal rotating basis.

Since COVID-19 we haven’t been able to meet up in the same way but have used Zoom to share ideas and admire each other’s art work.

We had the idea of taking one photograph and each using it in our own way.

Where ever you want it to be

Using monoprints produced on a vintage flatbed printer using oil based printing ink on BFK Rives linen based paper from France.  The random nature of the prints lends them to being cut up into triptychs or torn up into abstract works reflecting nature – Susan.

Watercolour – Anne

The composition and colours in a newspaper photo suggested an interesting subject, but perhaps more challenging as it included a face as well. I was pleased with how it turned out though, even if the facial likeness was not quite as per photo.
