Catch up here by watching what was happening at the meeting.
Nina Volk is one of our newer members who is part of a younger demographic in our membership.
She has a very interesting background and diverse range of skills and interests. Her background and early development reflect a culture that values and encourages watercolour and skill development from an early age. She has prepared a video of the power point presentation she gave about this to the November meeting this is the first video you can view.
At the meeting she demonstrated a Melbourne streetscape but she has included for your viewing a similar almost monochromatic demonstration with much clearer audio for you to watch. This demonstration is a part of her Patreon program (which is a way for artists to deliver instruction and mentoring online).
Watch this on The second video.

Beverley Castleman has studied the Hermannsburg School extensively and has collected over 470 paintings from this group of artists.
She has created a website that shows her collection and also has information about the work, the families and individual artists involved .
She and her husband Alan spoke to us at the October meeting and brought along a selection of paintings. This event marked possibly the last public appearance Beverley will make as she developed Vascular Dementia which is severely restricting her.
We were privileged to be able to see some of h=this amazing collection and to become aware of the work she has done and the knowledge she has collected and made accessible to all via
The video of the meeting has a challenging sound track but is worth your time to view.
