Art Club.

Volume 14, 1903, pgs. 470-471


This Club is open to any readers of the Review, either lady or gentleman. The terms are 6s. for six months. All work marked for exhibition is criticised by Mr. David Murray, A.R.A., on the yearly "Pupil's Show Day," in Miss Stewart Wood's studio, Vine Court Studio, Holland Street, Kensington. All particulars of the Club can be obtained from Miss A. Y. Davidson, Secretary, 41, Bessborough Gardens, London, S. W.

May to November, 1903.

Subjects for June.

I.—"In my garden." Endless varieties of branch bits may be painted, and those members who are fortunate enough to possess some of our lovely old English gardens, with stone walls and box hedges, may carry their studies very far.

With careful forethought in arrangement, even the simplest strip of ground may be rich in form and colour.

II.—An Evening Effect. Necessarily, this study can only be of short duration, as an effect towards evening rarely lasts without change for more than twenty minutes. Try and give the impression in any material easiest to you.

III.—Leafage. Take a similar bough to the bare branch chosen for the last month's exercise. Paint in the masses of leaves and try and get the exact tone as it appears against the sky. Draw the direction of the branch first, so that the foliage may hang rightly on it. Pay great attention to the shapes of the sky-holes seen through the trees.

No study to exceed 18 by 12 in. in size.
