Fourteen people met up at Nidd Hall on a dry, sunny morning for the last sketching trip for 2019. We were given a room for our sole use. After coffee we set off in all directions to find our own sketching spot.
The surprisingly large grounds had splendid trees showing Autumn colours, a lake, a water garden with statues , a church and stables with a clock tower.
Lunch was served at one large table in the oak panelled dining room with a roaring fire and festive decorations. Sketching after lunch was both outside in the grounds and inside.
Audrey thanks everyone who has supported the club sketching trips. The sketching trips have been to a variety of interesting places for enjoyable sketching in the company of like-minded folk.
If you have your 2020 diary ready, pop the date in of our first visit to.

We have a room for ourselves, you can look at the latest exhibition, sketch in the area and have snack lunch nearby in Hales Bar, the oldest pub in Harrogate, next to the Pump Room.
