Here is the sketch by Alan Earl that I promised to post earlier.



VISIT TO WIMPOLE HALL

Posted by chrishorder on July 9, 2017 at 10:50 AM

On a beautiful July day seven of us went to Wimpole meeting for lunch in the restaurant.   Those who have membership or who paid to go in went to the walled garden, but found, although beautiful, it was very hot and decided to paint outside in the shade of apple trees.  Liz had to move to make room for the grass cutters and seed collectors.  Why is nothing straight forward when you paint en plenair?  The rest decided to paint by the stable block which in itself is a challenge.


We all met later for tea and ice cream and a review of our work and agreed that Alan had as usual achieved an excellent architectural study.  I forgot to take a picture of this, but hope to include it on the website later.





GOLDEN PALETTE TROPHY

Posted by chrishorder on April 27, 2017 at 5:20 AM

There were fewer entries for the Golden Pallette this year, the subject being "Dancers", and ballet dancers seemed to be a favourite choice with the majority of members who entered.  From the mixture of mediums on display a lovely watercolour of 2 ballet dancers was chosen as the winner. Congratulations go to Elisabeth Atkinson.  The presentation was made by our Secretary, Maureen Emerton.





LVAS SHIELD 2017

Posted by chrishorder on January 19, 2017 at 10:50 AM

The LVAS Shield is open to those members who have not won an award in the past.  Because the majority of members have their names on various trophies, there were very few entries this year.  However, it was good to see entries from two new members and one of those, Dawn Needham, was successful with her collage and mixed media flower painting.  Very well done Dawn and we look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

THE WILF REID TROPHY 2016

There were 18 entries this year for the Best Summer Painting (any subject) in a variety of mediums.
After the members had voted, the trophy was presented to Val Gudge by our Chairman, Frances Leybourne.   Congratulations Val for your beautiful painting of a flower meadow.   A perfect subject for this trophy.


TRIP TO LEIGH ON SEA

Posted by chrishorder on June 23, 2016 at 8:15 AM

On a grey day yesterday a full minibus went to Leigh on Sea.  The driver was excellent and the journey each way was just over the hour.   Our first priority was for coffee in Sara's cafe, after which we all went in various directions to find suitable painting subjects with a promise to meet up for lunch.  Some of us met in the Peterboat Inn.   The weather improved, as you will see from the photos, but there were very few sketches produced after lunch.  The excitment of the day was when Frances was interviewed by someone from a French radio station re. the Referendum.

Many thanks Frances for organising a very enjoyable day.
