Fortunately it stayed dry at Romsey for the sketching group. Jean and June sketched Tee Court. Helen drew a view of Middlebridge Street which has many old or unusual buildings. While Di, Kate and Harry were choosing a viewpoint, a friendly local resident invited them to see his cottage with its private courtyard. Later, as the artists turned their attention to the ‘Bath House’, Romsey artist Jenny Morgan stopped for a chat. Harry went on to take photographs of Saddlers Mill.


Afterwards everyone met up at Rums Eg cafe in Bell Street for a welcome drink.  Kate showed Jean Inktense pencils which produce more saturated colour and June tried using them. The gallery had tempting displays of crafts as well as artwork and more than one purchase was made before leaving.


The last sketching meeting of the year will be at the King Rufus public house Eling Hill SO40 9HE Friday 11th November at 10.30 am. by kind permission of landlady (and artist) Philippa Goold.
