The Al Frescoes


Friday April 9 - St Mary the Virgin Anglican Church Metchosin


On this website, the pics will be posted at 1024 pixels on the longest side but some could be smaller depending on how they are submitted.

Location- or studio works are welcome during the pandemic.


Think I just missed the rain! Pauline van Blokland was the first to send in from Metchosin today.


Hi Ron, here is this week's contribution - done in the studio, but I hope to be back out next Friday! Kathleen Schmalz


Thoughts from Clement Kwan "At least once a week, outdoor painting is my current planned 'weekly homework' -
I am proud of myself still keeping the promise. Of a great help for me to keep my 'promise' is the famous email
'show and tell' showing painters' work of the day, which makes the Friday painting day more interesting!

I actually painted this painting on Thursday because I needed to do some other things today (Friday)
I painted about two hours at the location, then added some detail later on in my studio..."


Caron Smith - I didn't get too far with this one today, but here it is! 9.5" x 12" pastel on Pastelmat paper.


A town in Rajasthan, 4 x 4 feet, my final class project, could not go painting today. Irene


Got most of this done before the rain. Donna O'Grady.


David Good - Just to let people know I am still keeping track of Alfrescoe participants at our weekly plein air sessions.

Today's painting..... oil on panel 12" x 12"

Here is the entry in the book from last week at Tower Point... a great turnout.


Frank Mitchell: Lots of fully masked people turned out, in spite of the weather
(which wasn't too wet for most of the morning) Faun Lilies at St-Mary's - oil on board 12" X 10.25"
