Watercolour Victoria

Paint-outs are held regularly for interested Plein-Air artists. Sites are selected in the Melbourne region with easy access to coffee, food and toilet facilities. These are advertised in the Watercolour News (emailed to members), Watercolours Victoria (Facebook) and on the website.  - the monthly  bulletin which is E-mailed to all members.






 17th-19th March 2021

        The Watercolour Society of Victoria is organising a Paint Away to the Bass Coast on Wednesday 17th March - Friday 19th March 2021. We will base ourselves in Inverloch for the two nights and individuals are asked to organise their own accommodation. This Paint Away is designed for members and guests. Being less than 2 hours drive from Melbourne, WSV members may choose to stay for both nights or simply come and paint for the day.  Painting locations include Bass coastline, trestle bridges, rolling dairy hills and quaint rural towns.  Further details are available in the downloadable 3 page PDF document attached. Further Newsletters related to the Paint Away will be emailed to members over the next few weeks.

In lieu of Paint Outs, we have replaced these events with a Paint In. Members will be able to paint along with a leading watercolourist using zoom technology.
