the Autumn sunshine
Perfect weather and a great turn out for our day
of landscape painting in the extensive grounds of Bicton House.
It could hardly have been better with a wide choice of locations around the Georgian house, the gardens, arboretum and the lake.
Although there were still a lot of trees retaining their foliage, the colours were on the turn and many had a golden carpet of dry and crunchy leaves beneath them.
The following is a small selection of work and photos taken through the day – and with such a varied selection of drawings and paintings, we’ve been invited to put on an Autumn themed show in the College Library.
More information on this soon.
Our thanks are due to Bicton College, and in particular Sim, for accommodating
us all and, providing the facilities and a most enjoyable lunch in our own room for the day.
Maybe we'll have a return visit next year and catch the trees as they're preparing to burst forth with those wonderful fresh greens and yellows - and of course the daffodils when they're in full bloom.
Places still available
We’ve had a great deal of interest from members for our day's painting and drawing in The Oak Room at Bicton House so for those who may still want to join us here are some further details:
The date is now confirmed, 30th November and the session will run from 10am till 3pm.
We have yet to confirm the cost for the day but based on members’ responses so far, it looks as if it will be between £15 and £20. This will include hire of the room, a donation to Fairlynch, model fees and lunch.
I’d be grateful if you could let me know as soon as you can if you'd like to come along so I can determine the cost. It should be a very interesting, enjoyable and productive day and something new for the Club. Simply e-mail me through our contact form FAO John Washington.
Many thanks - I look forward to hearing from you.
