The next meeting will be on 12 May 1pm at the Glenfield Memorial Hall, Hall Road, Glenfield.
With autumn colours everywhere, life is an artist's dream this month. I was trying to paint some coloured leaves which I picked up in One Tree Hill domain last week. When one actually looks hard (with and artist's eye) it is amazing how many hues and colours they contain. Quite a challenge.
This month's challenge of a girl in a mirror is also a challenge. My granddaughter was very excited to be asked to pose for me . She has hazel coloured hair which shone brightly on the light side and her cheeky cheeks looked very girlish. But now I have to paint these features and reflect them accurately otherwise the family will roast me. Not easy.
I hope that you are enjoying these challenges and I look forward to the May meeting at Glenfield to see how you interpreted this subject.
Congratulations to all those who have sold paintings at the Takapuna exhibition. I thought that Murray Stuart's masterpiece of Devonport set a very high tone. Thanks to all who participated. The standard is certainly rising.
I am really looking forward to Murray's workshop .should be a lot of fun.
