Aquarelle: Tuesday Afternoon 2 - 4.30pm

 A lovely, zen Tuesday afternoon, where everyone worked a bit on their applications for the all-Hangar Expo! Lot's of 'Spring' related work, above by Avril and below by Edith

Tender 'Blue' Rose by Edith

 Liz started a painting inspired by the 'Carnival de Venise'

Moment of love between mother and child by Sandra

Patience worked on the properties of a gap. First a light background with an exciting effect

Then a different version with a dark background. 2 studies with  quite a nice result!

 Christine paid very good attention to everything Cathie explained about working with salt - and is now practising, with ever improving results!

 And then the master herself... Cathie's Pins - one set finished and one in progress...

Les Falaises

From 23 April to 6 May, our own Brenda Malley has a solo exhibition in the Terrasse des Arts in Le Cannet! It is called 'Entre Terre et Mer', and that title promises us enticing land- and seascapes. Brenda will show brand new work and all paintings will no doubt have that special light, that intriguing texture and beautiful perspective that we know and admire her for!

 L'Eau Claire

In addition to her palette knife oil paintings of sea and shore Brenda will be exhibiting some small watercolour and pen and ink sketches, and mini abstracts - all priced under €100.
You can visit the exhibition every day from 3pm to 6pm, but if you wish to visit in the morning or at lunchtime Brenda is happy to meet you there. Give her a call on 06 86 78 51 71  or email brendamalley@gmail.com.

Spring is in the air!

Avril's finalized Waterlily!

Costanza's stylized crocuses

And more spring flowers, also by Costanza

Edith's beautiful blossom flower. In progress

Patience's weird but very interesting flower/animal

Agnès's fan-tas-tic Carnival de Venise watercolour

Anna-Karin also proceeded with her fragile butterfly mandala

Christine has now finished her fruit bowl. Extra contrast and a background definitely did the job!
Liz finished her boats - aren't they bobbing calmly?!

Cathie embarked on an excellent new project! Old golfclubs and golfballs.

My Cat Is Sad - by Edith

This is going to be such a lovely picture! Can't wait to see it finished... Baby Giraffe by Sandra
