Who are you call­ing dull?

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

The idea that wa­ter­colours are pale and dull is out­dated and wrong, says Wa­ter­colour New Zealand.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion is chal­leng­ing that as­sump­tion with an ex­hi­bi­tion of paint­ings at Pataka that runs un­til June 15.

It fea­tures works by many of New Zealand’s leading wa­ter­colourists, in­clud­ing Kapiti artists Wendy Masters, Vi­vian Man­thel- French, Mary- An­nette Hay, Ge­orge Thomp­son, Daniel Reeve, Peter Au­gustin, Claire Clark and Mar­garet Brown.

On week­ends, mem­bers will demon­strate the art of wa­ter­colour paint­ing in the mu­seum’s Bot­tle Creek Gallery.

Colourful, not pale: Bridges on a Vene­tian Canal by Ge­orge Thomp­son.

Bright, not dull: Gull­fight by Daniel Reeve.
