VISIT TO KING JOHS HOUSE, ROMSEY, BY THE ADVENTUROUS ARTISTS


ADVENTUROUS ARTISTS AT KING JOHN'S HOUSE, ROMSEY

It was a beautiful windless morning when we gathered to sketch gardens and architecture at King John's. The gardens were full of flowers - a credit to the volunteers who look after them. We each  found a seat and a subject and spent a pleasant hour or so sketching. This time some of us tried using different media from usual and experimented with inks ( soluble or waterproof), coloured pencils and water-soluble crayons. The many different colours of the flowers in the gardens and the beautiful variation in stone and brick of the buildings lent themselves to such treatments. The morning ended with refreshments in the garden sitting in the sun.
