‘HIDDEN GEMS’
– a message from Terry Whitworth


“We are surrounded, of course, by amazing vistas, big landscapes and seascapes and beautiful and varied towns and villages. All great subject matter for a painter.
 
However, sometimes the most fascinating subjects are in the details of the things that are around us. Places that are easily missed. They could include small clumps of wild flowers growing out of ancient stone walls, small rusting industrial details from a past era being gradually reclaimed by nature … or small ‘abandoned’ parts of our garden which are taking on a natural but unexpected beauty. These small, ‘hidden gems’ are everywhere.
 
The LRAS Challenge for June/July, is to first spend a bit of time looking for these special areas that hold a special fascination for you. They should be places that already exist, quite small in area and not ‘composed’ or manipulated by you.
 
Then produce a 25cm x 25cm square painting, in any medium and style, on paper, canvas sheet, card, or thin board, to try to show the beauty of this unique subject.
 
Best of luck, and I look forward to seeing the results!”
 
Terry Whitworth
President of LRAS
