LYNNE MARIE EATWELL DEMO

Lynne Marie Eatwell joined us at the October Members' Meeting and kept us all enthralled with a demo of her wonderful oil painting style.





















She talked us through her process from empty palette and blank canvas to finished piece, which was completed in only an hour and a half.


















The relaxed fluidity of her arm movements and quick, loose brushwork was very evident in the lovely energy of the painting.








     What started as simple areas of lights and darks, was
     transformed by a few well placed details, which pulled
     the whole composition together, resulting in a very
     pleasing still life.

     Thank you Lynne Marie, for the inspiration.

SASA's 108th Annual Exhibition


















 Monday 6 October saw the opening of our 108th Annual exhibition.
 It was a wonderfully warm, summery evening and a large crowd of
 art enthusiasts attended the exhibition, which was opened by local
 artist, Jenny Parsons.





Jenny's opening address was both inspiring and
complimentary and she kept the audience nicely
entertained.
 
She also had the pleasurable task of handing out the trophies and other awards for the various categories.
Thank you Jenny.






















There are 261 works, by 116 artists, on exhibition, many of which were sold on opening night, and we received many compliments on the high standard of the work on display.



 
     Mary's catering was, as always
     marvelous and much appreciated.

     It was a well organised event and a
     very enjoyable evening was had by
     all who attended.
