summer sketching 2022

Here are some pictures from our June sketching session at Beccles Quay.  We managed an hour before the rain defeated us!


Following his recent demonstration at the society, Colin Ayers has very kindly offered the society access to 7 step-by-step guides to watercolour painting (various locations).  If you would like access to these and are a current member please contact Sally Ladbrooke sally.ladbrooke889@googlemail.com

Colin would like to hear from members (and others) who are interested in him running tutored watercolour and mixed media classes in Beccles.  Please contact Colin at info@colinayersart.co.uk

As we have not been able to have our monthly demonstrations, the committee organised some outdoor sketching sessions, to take advantage of the (sometimes!) lovely summer weather.  Photos taken at our sketching sessions can be viewed below.
