We are delighted that our Life and Platinum Member, Tim Sewell, is donating the Raffle for Exhibition 125. The painting is called Yallingup-Summer. Please note that the painting is at the framers, so Tim kindly supplied this low-res image, taken from his mobile, in the interim. We will include a more high quality version when Tim gets the original back.
Here is how Tim describes the painting - in his own words:
(Oil on board 51 x 41cms)
"This year we celebrate 125 years of WASA so I wanted to find a subject which was both local and fun.
Whilst staying in Busselton recently I visited Yallingup and over two days painted the Store-Post Office, near Caves House, en plein air. I used that painting as the basis of this larger studio work. I wanted to capture that holiday feeling and produce a work which will entertain the viewer, lift the spirits and perhaps evoke some happy memories too.
I like to include characters in my paintings to give the viewer the chance to imagine a story to weave some narrative and mystery; we all like to watch people after all.
