In May 2011 Swansea Valley artist Hilary Bryanston gave us a talk on her work and a demonstration of how she paints natural / found objects (see below) in watercolour. The meeting was one of the best attended of the year and everyone was impressed by her versatility and fascinated by the proceedings.

In May 2011 local artist Andy Hardwick gave us a demonstration in oil painting. Although it appears that not many members are using oils at the moment it was fascinating to see how the media can be used and manipulated by an artist who has had many years experience and who exhibits in south Wales.
