We had a great experience during this Event 2014. This is a wonderful opportunity to paint in the old, East part of Germany, and immerse yourself in paint :) . Places are still available, if you would like to join us let us know.
..and the local wildlife :))
Jazes - I'll be scarin' them - I'm bringin' me togs!
Not a pretty sight, but I love the water.
Congratulations Alison on passing your mid-term assignments ! We'll miss you this year, and thanks for the great reminder of our time last year. If circumstances change, I'm sure there'll be a spot for you.. All the best, Karen
I've been chatting to Nikolai about frames. Rather than deal with one individual, he would like a response from all the group members about their needs/preferences. So, do we want Nikolai to order up frames for us? Which sizes - metric or imperial?
What is the deadline for paying Gerd, and are the arrangements the same as last year?
I think I may just send some of my own frames in advance, George.
How many frames are we talking about for exhibition? I can bring a few small oil frames of 10" X 12" and 8" X 10 with me. Depending on how many pieces we may exhibit, I would like at least two watercolour frames to fit 40cm X 50cm size pieces of work. I'm afraid to put glass in a suitcase. Limed ash or something simple with a mount would be great.
I'll be painting 30cm X 40cm and 12" X 16" too, but I don't think I'll be framing them. If there are any spare frames those sizes knocking around it would be great!! All the frames I have here are very heavy and have glass. If I put any more frames in my suitcase I won't have room for my knickers. I intend to paint up a storm!
Maybe I'll just stick to my small oil frames then. No need to complicate matters.
The paint surfaces are feckin' heavy! I'll have about 12 kilos of art stuff - and that is cutting it down as much as I can. And my little stool is another kilo. Just as well we aren't flying Ryanair. And I booked a 25 kilo case each way. The case weighs a fair bit too. But there's always hand luggage.
It is good that people can see stuff as we paint it.
did you decide meanwhile what kind of frames you desire? It would be great if you send me send some details this week.
@ Valerie: I have some frames for watercolor here. Lynne showed last year her watercolors. They are simple wooden frames with a mate. I have to check the width and height.
About the amount of the paintings in the show – it'll be exactly as last year, because we'll be 10 painters again. So, everybody can show max. three paintings.
