Painting Challenge responses

Here are two interpretations of the shutters image in the latest painting challenge

Helen Welch

Richard Hyde
It's always fascinating to see different approaches to a reference photo. Helen has included the pigeon and boards whereas I have left the space 'open'. Perhaps I could have relieved the dark rectangle with slightly lighter tones to indicate that there might be something in the room behind the opening.

Even the photo chosen involves some selection. At some stage there was a second pigeon sitting on top of the leaning shutter.

If anyone else wants to contribute a painting do send an image to laschallenge@yahoo.com

Best in Show

Congratulations to Brian Griffiths whose watercolour painting Talybont and the Brecon Beacons proved to be very popular with visitors. It gained more votes than any other painting by quite a margin.

Visitor numbers were high this year. Ten paintings sold and cards sold well.

Brian does have his own website so you can see more of his paintings and also his photographs https://www.brianonwoodside.co.uk/

Summer Exhibition photos

The exhibition started today and here are some photos of the paintings. Some, unfortunately, pick up reflections from the windows but still give a reasonable impression of the paintings on show. We also have cards and unframed paintings and prints for sale.
