Fruit Challenge Results


Monday 5th February 2018 saw our members come together for our 'Critique' evening, where we also held our 'Fruit Challenge' competition. The objective being to create a picture containing something to do with fruit, being either a still life, fruit trees, or a landscape including a fruit theme.


We had a total of 26 entries, which was wonderful The lovely display can be seen below.


The winning entry was from one of our new members, Simon Anthony for his bowl of fruit. To paint glass is a great skill, and the way he captured such a soft effect was beautiful. The runner up was a new member from last year, Linda Willey, with her image of a blackberry bundle. The way Linda captured the light on the berries in this painting was wonderful.
