December Challenge

December Challenge - get those brushes out !!

As members will know from their newsletter, the December Challenge this year is to create a picture 12"x4.5" for the Facebook banner - your choice of subject.
The FB banner is changed monthly to that month's demonstration. As we have no meeting in January we need some pictures.

Four paintings will be chosen from the entries brought in to the December meeting. To encourage members to take part, whatever their ability, the four will be selected by random draw rather than being judged. The banner will be changed weekly on Facebook
The painted area must be 12"x 4.5" as per the example shown below. Entries can be brought as is but if you choose to frame please don't frame behind glass as it makes it impossible to take photos.

It would be interesting to hear from entrants why they chose to paint what they did. We are an Arts & Crafts society so it would be nice if we had some 'non painting' entries so long as they meet the spec.

If you can't be at the meeting then get another member to bring your entry in - there is no excuse for not entering !!
