Day 1 of the Swindon Open Studios 2009 at the Central Library

The first day of the Swindon Open Studios 2009 went well at the Swindon Central Library. A steady flow of visitors came to meet the artists during the whole day, enjoying seing paintings done on site (Max Hale painting a portrait and Benoit Philippe painting him painting his model).

Plenty of talks between the artists and the public. There was even some art sold during the day.
