lowrey2A demonstration of watercolour painting by Arnold Lowrey brought a  sizeable audience to the Art Group's evening meeting.  After explaining his preference for brushes, paints and paper, he set about giving a quick explanation of the techniques he uses.  Then he amazed many of the Art Group by undertaking both a landscape and a seascape in a little over an hour! 

There's something for you!
