Monthly and Annual Competitions

At each monthly meeting, members can enter a competition. The judge is the demonstrator for that month.

Entries are in three (3) categories:

  1. John Adeney Section

  3. Alternate Section

Points are awarded in each section to decide the winners of the Annual Competition.

Categories 1 and 2 are for paintings only. The Alternate Section is for contemporary paintings and other media.

Demonstration – The demonstrator for this month will be Peter Thorpe, who will be sharing with us some further watercolour techniques.

Peter Thorpe emigrated to Australia from the UK in 1978 and, after a career as a painter and decorator, began to develop his interest in watercolours in 1997.

To learn more about watercolour techniques, Peter studied under Master Watercolourist Tony Lewis in Queensland. He is particularly skilled in landscape painting.

One of Peter’s recent exhibitions was at Art in Linden Gate at 899 Healesville-Yarra Glen Road, Yarra Glen.

Besides pursuing his love of art, for many years Peter taught advanced watercolour painting at U3A in Croydon.

Peter’s demonstration is sure to provide fresh inspiration and be full of ideas and interest.
