THE PETER DELL BOWL


As the President was unable to be at the AGM but had chosen Maggie Gibbs' painting as the best picture in the Summer Exhibition, the bowl was presented by Angela Wisson.  Well done Maggie for both prizes.

WILF REID TROPHY


The trophy was presented to Maggie Gibbs for her beautiful watercolour named "Final Resting Place" by Angela Wisson.  It was appropriate for her to make the presentation as Wilf was her father and a founder member of the society.

Last Wednesday's visit to Angela's garden.   Everyone enjoyed a lovely afternoon.  There was tea and cake.  Even some bubbly.  Many thanks Angela.



TRIP TO PIN MILL

Posted by chrishorder on July 6, 2018 at 9:45 AM

 

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.  








GOLDEN PALETTE TROPHY

Posted by chrishorder on April 26, 2018 at 10:10 AM

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".   



WILF REID TROPHY

Posted by chrishorder on October 20, 2017 at 10:40 AM

There were fewer entries this year for the best Summer painting (any subject) and with the exception of possibly 2 they were all watercolours.   After the members had voted the trophy was awarded to Malcolm Norris for his lovely painting of Pin Mill in Suffolk.  Well done Malcolm for an excellent piece of work typifying a scene along the Suffolk/Norfolk coast.  The presentation was made by our Chairman, Frances Leybourne.
