The Al Frescoes

This is what these artists are facing - a busy scene, so each of us selects
a centre of interest - each artist paints a different aspect and even though we are all at the same location,
each painting is as different as the individual people we all are - no two paintings are ever the same.

At lunch we line up for 'show and tell' with paintings propped up on the bench.

With another winner painted en plein air, Clement Kwan leaves for home.

As far as the Al Frescoes painters are concerned we are all non-members - that's what the Al Frescoes is all about -
we are individuals who paint out, that's all. No fees, no rules. No problem.

Our thanks to Ron Wilson who took today's pictures. Google his name to see his weekly painting blog.
