Sketching at Farnley Hall

Audrey had recently visited Farnley Hall on an arts bus trip and had asked Guy if club members could sketch in the grounds. He kindly agreed and on the day he showed us where we could sketch. We followed in the footsteps of JMW Turner who visited regularly between 1806 and 1824.

The building has a Georgian block looking out over Wharfedale towards Otley Chevin opposite.

There is an earlier Jacobean building at the rear.

There are extensive grasslands with isolated trees and extensive mixed woodland.

Members spread out around the buildings.

Compulsory dinner break.

After a day sketching and painting, the members had produced different interpretations of what they saw.
