Audrey picked another good day for sketching, in between very wet days, at Old Sleningford Hall near Mickley and the River Ure. The gardens are well worth visiting and members of the club have been involved with sketching here since 1996.
Jane made us most welcome and showed some of her art works in her studio. She mentioned that there were spare places on a three day course in September ,”Still Life from Black and White to Colour” run by Paul Curtis, who demonstrated to the Pateley Bridge Art Club in July 2017. There are many art courses held in the Stable Gallery, see website > www.oldslen.co.uk
There was plenty to keep our interest in the grounds, down by the lake, around the stable gallery and courtyard, where we sat for our lunch.
Despite the distractions, the group were able to produce some sketches, not all completed, that may inspire paintings.
