Brian Troy and fellow University of the Third Age (U3A) Mornington artists settled among the flamboyantly colourful ‘Playboy’, ‘Brass Band’ and other spectacular varieties now in bloom at the Mornington Botanical Rose Gardens.  Painting ‘en plein air’, the advanced watercolour art class mixed paints on palettes as they prepared to capture the studied beauty of the magnificent old and new rose varieties.

Tutor Margaret Thompson talked about the differences in working outside in the natural environment and painting inside in the contrived space of a studio.  

“When painting outside in the fresh air, what artists see and experience is influenced by the natural light, fragrance, the earth and its wildlife, sounds and movements,” Margaret said.  “Watching class members at work around the rose gardens, it was a pleasure to see how nature inspires the artist to reveal the extravagant structure and exquisite detail of the variegated colours and abundance of rose blooms in the spring sunshine.”

If you would like to join one of the many art classes or other courses this summer and for 2017, enrol on Wednesday, December 7, either online at u3amornington.com.au from 10am-midnight or in person at the U3A office, 5-17 Currawong St, Mornington, from 9.30am-noon.  Phone 5975 9773 for details.
