What a lot of variety we have at our monthly meetings. Take the last one, Watercolours by Prince Charles, Spiderweb challenges, painting people by Australian Joseph Zbukvic, graded washes and city outlines, as well as camaraderie and coffee, something for everyone.

Please start collecting your best paintings for our annual showcase event: The Annual Merit Awards exhibition. Please note the entry conditions and let's have a really outstanding show.
