Mum and Dad have recently embarked
upon a course of evening art classes.
Having never done anything like it in the past,
they've thoroughly enjoyed the challenges that this has presented.
The range of styles that they have been covering
varies considerably, from watercolour depictions of postcard
scenes to still-life charcoal drawings.
Here, for the first time, some of their recent
work can be seen in all of its glory.
First off then, a painting of the ruins of
a castle that mum completed late last year. Bearing in mind
the fact that she has been painting for only a few months,
I think you'll agree that this is pretty spectacular.
