Today there were 8 entries for the Golden Pallete Trophy.. The subject was "Portrait" and, surprisingly, amongst the many different mediums there were 2 animal portraits.
The very worthy winner was Val Gudge who produced a beautifully detailed watercolour of "Tobago Man". Congratulations Val. The Trophy was presented by the previous winner, Chris Horder.

Keith Hornblower is a prominent watercolourist and a Fellow of the Society of Achitectural Buildings. On Friday 22nd February he wowed a packed audience with his watercolour demonstration, working from a photograph of a well known local scene in Broxbourne (opposite St. Augustine's Church). Keith also brought examples of his work covering a wide variety of subjects which was admired by all during a tea & coffee break.

On Wednesday 14 members went by minibus to Pin Mill (plus 2 by car) and enjoyed a pleasantly warm day with lovely sea breezes. I have not been there before and was delighted to find that it is a painters' paradise, providing you like painting boats. After tea/coffee we all found various positions for sketching, which kept us amused for an hour or two. Then we all went to The Butt and Oyster for lunch and you will see from the picture that they provided us with really tasty food. Most of us tried another sketch although some probably just relaxed. I think everyone agreed that we had a lovely day. The journeys in both directions were good.
Many thanks to Frances for organising the transport. We were very sorry that you and Russell were not able to be with us.

Yesterday the members voted to chose the winner of the Golden Palette and the subject this year was "A Rainy Day". The majority of votes were given to Chris Horder (that is me). I was amazed and delighted to be presented with the trophy by Frances, our Chairman. The painting will be entitled "Raindrops".
