March Porcelain

This month the members were left spell bound and amazed as the speaker for the evening, Mrs Gill Andlington proceeded to show how, using the "wet into wet" method of oil painting ,a masterpiece could be produced in 30 minutes!

She started the "snow scene" picture with lots of yellow and pink which eventually became the reflection of the sun on the snow. She kindly donated the picture and it was decided to hang it in the village hall for everybody to appreciate.

The competition for the month was a porcelain item which produced varied entries and was won by Margaret Denton.
