Member Geoff Butterworth has shared some good news with us.

Two weeks ago He spent a Saturday painting a watercolour in the ‘Paint Padiham ‘ open air competition.

He spent just under six hours and produced the watercolour below.

He went along to the exhibition open day yesterday to receive Second prize winning £750.00 , so he is very pleased

His painting was the only watercolour out of 53 entrants.

This was only the second time he has  done a painting Plein Air but is getting more confident.

Geoff commented ‘Not my best work, I am a studio artist not an outside painter but I am getting the bug…’

Congratulations  Geoff .
