Monthly challenge

The winner of March’s challenge is Jennifer Waller with her oil painting Tree peonies. In second place is Gina Grimwood, and in joint third place are Margaret Eggleton, Colin Garrod, Louise Schenck, Barbara Stevens and Lynn Toulson. Many congratulations to all. The names of the artists are now revealed on March’s monthly challenge page.

Once again, Gina identified the highest number of artists (15 out of 21), and Richard and Louise identified 9 and 8 respectively – well done!

April’s subject is Spring, and the deadline for entries is 10pm, Friday 30 April.

Please email a jpg of your entry to Barbara Stevens (subject Monthly challenge) and let her know the title of your picture and the medium. Please follow the guidelines for creating a .jpg on the Resources page.  Barbara is happy to resize/rename files if anyone has any problems.


Many congratulations to Gina Grimwood who has won the Jem Bowden watercolour painting competition in the Leisure Painter. Her picture is printed in this month’s issue.
