C1 Fierce and Furious (Charcoal)
C2 Caricature or Cartoon (Any Medium)
Eve is a postgraduate of Winchester College and paints in an abstract and expressionist style. She says colour is very emotive for her and always leads the way. Her intriguing demonstration title is 'A Splash of Colour. Overcoming the Fear of the Blank'.
The final meeting of the year, our annual festive celebration, is always such a wonderful social occasion. This year we are delighted to be returning to our traditional venue the upstairs hall at Holy Trinity Church on Rolle Street.
We invite members to bring a contribution to the finger buffet and enjoy a complimentary drink, the best of company, a lovely atmosphere, ice breaker, quizzes, raffle. Unsurprisingly, it is always very well attended.
The theme for the optional competition is 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' in any medium and the winner chosen by members and presented with the Roger Matthews' Cup.
Undoubtedly, the festive season produces extra waste so an opportunity to reveal potential aesthetic qualities in litter and/or to make a bit of a splatter.

For this month's double competition one a traditional theme but using a contemporary medium and for the other a subject which you might decide to interpret literally or allegorically and your choice of media.
