News from the Lovett Bay
Fire Shed Dinner
Thank you so much to the
150 people who came to the Lovett Bay Fire Shed dinner on Saturday
It was a tremendous success and raised over $3,000 for the Bush
Fire brigade.Image by Rachel Dulson
It was great to have NSW RFS West Pittwater Brigade Captain Andrew
Cutler at the dinner as well as the new Western Foreshore and Scotland
island residents who have recently moved to the bays.
There was a huge turnout of volunteers to set up the venue as well as
helping Susan Wallace in the kitchen to prepare the excellent three
course meal. A true community get together
Given the extra large turnout of guests it has been decided to buy some
more tables for the shed, so that Mick Cardiff won't have to bring his
garden tables up from the house! Thank you Mick.
Rachel Dulson was the official photographer on the night and once again
did an excellent job in capturing the people, the place and the spirit
of the event
Here’s a link to the Rachel’s pics - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0960j8eh85ebjdz/AAD0hXLUKWWRjlkXBnzzAsg_a?dl=0
Thanks again to everyone who helped and all who attended. It was a
wonderful community event and planning is already under way for next
Secrets of the Masters
Secrets of Vermeer with
tutor Sophie Haythornthwaite
This will be a series of workshops concentrating on the specific
techniques utilised by different artists to create their signature look
and feel. What makes a Vermeer a Vermeer, or a Rembrandt a Rembrandt?
We will find out, and learn to apply these techniques to our own work.
Vermeer is one of the most beloved painters of all time, and very much
a ‘painters painter’. His masterly and subtle use of colour and
composition is unique. The quietness and contemplative air of his
interiors create little oases of peace and tranquility within the
picture frame. We will discuss how Vermeer created his compositions,
including his use of devices such as the camera obscura and camera
lucida. We will also cover Vermeer’s technique of layering
complementary and contrasting colours to create the beautiful glowing
vibrancy of his hues and his use of different paint textures and
brushwork to create different surface effects.
Also coming soon in this series of workshops are: Secrets of the Pre
Raphaelites, Secrets of Rembrandt, Secrets of Leonardo, Secrets of Van
Eyck and the Flemish Masters, Secrets of Caravaggio.
