Plein Air at Streeton Lookout, Freemans Reach 16th June

MTAS Plein Air Painting at Streeton Lookout, Freemans Reach
Sunday, 16th June

You are invited to our next Plein Air Painting Day that will be held at Streeton Lookout, Freemans Reach this Sunday, 16th June.

Bring along your paints and drawing materials and your morning tea/picnic lunch. Join us for the beautiful scenery of Freemans Reach painted all those years ago by Arthur Streeton, after whom the lookout is named, and captured in his beautiful work “Purple noon’s transparent might”.

Arthur Streeton’s images celebrate the blue and gold palette of Australia’s sun-drenched landscape. In early 1896 Streeton travelled to the upper reaches of the Hawkesbury River, between Richmond Bridge and Windsor, where he was inspired by the expansive view looking towards the Blue Mountains. ‘The purple noon’s transparent might’ takes it’s title from a poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley that embraces the natural world – sun, sky, water and mountains – and was painted in two days ‘during a shade temperature of 108 degrees’, in a state of ‘artistic intoxication with thoughts of Shelley in my mind’.

Come along and bring your friends.

Time: 9am to 3pm
When: Sunday, 16th June
Venue: Streeton Lookout, 542 Terrace Road, Freemans Reach
Bring: Your paints or drawing materials for en plein air, your morning tea and lunch

For more info contact Kym 0413 809 685 or mtas.com.au
