Birregurra Painter's Collective News


During the school holidays we had the pleasure of a visit from Debbie McIntyre and she had the following kind words to share;

“While on school holidays I took the opportunity to visit Birregurra's newly formed painting group.
 
How lovely to find a small group quietly enjoying, exploring & sharing their love of painting. 

As founding members Sophia & Barry worked (or played!) away, the group's 'leader' Natalie introduced me & explained the ethos of the group. "I just wanted to paint with other people so I thought I'd start a group to see if anyone else wanted to as well. No pressure to work in any particular medium or way. I just wanted to be painting with others."

Barry & Sophia expressed how grateful they were that Natalie did!

As Barry explained to me about his painting, I started to get an appreciation for his skill & love of painting. Sophia was experimenting with different textural method for the base of her latest work. Thirteen year old Clodagh was having fun using water colours & looking for inspiration. That’s when Natalie brought out her computer generated art. Wow! They were fantastic! Some were dark & moody, others light & airy. All stunning.”

(Thanks Deb)

 Shortly after Deb left, Maggie arrived to work on her impressive ink study of the Church and this week Alison continued with her beautiful landscape while Chris worked on putting some finishing touches on her very entertaining journals. Whilst small, our painting group enjoys a variety of talents as well as many laughs and occasional personal concerns which all members treat with respect and care.
 
 
 
The Birregurra Painting group meets every Thursday at the Anglican Church hall from 11am - 2pm. BYO your painting gear. Tea & coffee provided.
