We should like to thank everyone who showed an interest in the display of some of our work at the Open Meeting in February. Your positive comments were very encouraging, and much appreciated. As a result of that meeting, we have four lovely new members to the group, which means we are now virtually full to capacity. Our latest project has been on the theme of boats. Several members brought along models, photographs and pictures of a wide variety of boats. Some of these certainly tested our drawing skills! Other members pursued their own individual interests; we have a number of very talented botanical artists especially. The atmosphere at our last meeting was excellent, and ideas and techniques were readily exchanged. Thanks again to Derek who made time to speak to all of us and to offer support and advice.
