Genius Night

Sometimes instead of a demonstration night we have an activity for members.

For Genius Night each member participating picks a famous artist who they consider to be a Genius.

In the months preceding the main night they decide on a painting by their genius and either copy it or paint their own work in the style of the original.

On Genius Night each member talks about the painting - why they chose that artist and painting, how they painted it, what they learnt from doing it, etc.

Members decide on the best painting and the winner is presented with a certificate.

This year’s winner was Colin Osborne, with a painting of HMS Warrior and the Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth, in the style of “The Fighting Temeraire” by J.M.W.Turner
