Having ended the year with a rip-roaring Christmas Party at the Old Cheese Factory, art’s probably on the back-burner for most of us over Christmas and New Year. Our annual montlhy competition winners were announced at the party, with Ros Meadmore successful in... Cathy’s demonstration, using pastels, can only be described as brilliant. Even for those of us who don’t use pastels, it was a most interesting and vibrant evening. Peter’s Impressionist / Realist style was executed with strong contrasts. His rendition of Bushranger Bay near Flinders had the full attention of his audience, and we all learned some new techniques.
