This month, we are back with still lifes; the November challenge is 'A still life with toys'. Maybe you still have your favourite doll or stuffed toy and a nostalgic still life would be your chosen subject. Or you can delve into your kids' or grandkids' toy box and see what tickles your fancy. Now go to the studio and play!

 

 

The PGE is happy to announce the relaunch of its own Photo Library (LIB).

We hope that this work-in-progress will turn into a source of inspiration for our

members.

In order to work, the LIB needs you to contribute: this is a communal project by

members for members. So if you have photos which you think could be good artistic references, please donate them to our library.

Every library has a set of "house rules" and ours is no exception:

‘My inspiration’

‘I love and respect animals and my aim and my passion is finding ways to

express my inner most emotions with regards to living things.
