Plein Air Outing to Nitida Winery

Thursday 26 October was cold and rainy! Great for the dams, but not so great for plein air painting, so it was a fearless few who braved the weather and gathered at “Tables” for the morning’s outing.

Some of us bundled up and worked outside, or used a car boot for protection from the rain and icy wind, while others gathered objects and took them inside for some still-life drawing.

 

 

 

 

The wine tasting room also proved to be a great place to get some drawing done, with Nitida’s wonderful wines for inspiration. We all eventually gave in and met in the restaurant, to thaw out and warm up with a nice cup of coffee beside the log fire.

 

 

 

 

Even though the weather wasn’t great, the company certainly was and some lovely work was produced. Thanks to all of you for getting there and making it such a very worthwhile and enjoyable morning. Thanks, as well, to Lynne Menge for organising it for us.
