January 2019

Happy New Year - our year started with Alan Chown demonstrating his Pen and Wash technique with us.  It was a great evening despite the overhead camera we usually have access to not working meaning we had to close up a bit more than normal to see his wonderful work!

A big thank you to our resident Quiz Master Peter Bowtell - a great quiz to finish the year.  Those local questions don't get any easier!
