Second Prize went to Stephen Park for his magnificent “Bentley” which was painted with Acrylics.
The Third Prize winner was Neville Hunt with his watercolour painting entitled “The Phantom II 1929″. Inserts showed the engine and interior detail.
Twelve year old Brandon Townshend used acrylics to paint “Red Night”. It was one of the first paintings to be sold. Our Congratulations go to Brandon. He is wearing the Rolls Royce cap presented to him by the Rolls Royce Owners Club of Australia and yes, that is a real parrot on his shoulder.
Show Judge Ern Trembath’s oil painting “Swamp land near Thornton”. Ern’s paintings bring to life our magnificent Gum trees and Australian bushland.
Yesterday I attended an Art Show at the Sherbrooke Art Gallery near Melbourne. The Exhibition and Art Competition honoured Sir Henry Royce of Rolls Royce fame. The organizers were pleased with the number of entries and the high quality of the work. One artist, twelve year old Brandon Townshend, received a Rolls Royce cap and a lot of well deserved attention for his painting “Red Night”. The show is open (except on Tuesdays) until Sunday April 15th at the Sherbrook Art Gallery. Show judge, well known Australian artist Ern Trembath, had one of his exquisite paintings on display.”Swamp land near Thornton” impressed us so much we decided to buy it. It was a great afternoon of joint celebration of fine Art and wonderful old Rolls Royce and Bentley motor vehicles. The Exhibition is well worth a visit and so is the Society’s Blog.
