Here are a few examples of our members' artistic efforts. We hope you will enjoy having the opportunity of a 'private viewing' in the comfort of your own home.

If what we do inspires you to develop your own talents then come along and join us.

Maligne Lake

Let's start with a visit to Canada. Here's a view of this picturesque lake near Jasper. Famed for the colour of its water, the surrounding peaks, the three glaciers visible from the lake and Spirit Island, a frequently photographed islet this is a must-visit location on any trip to the Rockies. Painted in watercolour by Derek Howell.

Mobirise

Half Dome, Yosemite

Over the border into the United States and here we are at Yosemite National Park with a view of Half Dome, the well-known granite formation, named for its distinct shape. This view is enjoyed from the overlook at Glacier Point from which you can admire the village, almost 1000 metres below, three waterfalls and this magnificent panorama. Again, by Derek in watercolour.

Water, water everywhere

Terry Price tries various media for his paintings - here's a work in pastels. Don't know where he got the inspiration for this work - it's probably the Somerset Levels floods in 2014.

Mobirise

Late Spring flowers

Now a complete change in Terry's technique for a subtle collection of spring flowers in watercolour.

Mobirise

Westbury-on-Trym church

Richard Bowden has chosen a local scene here - Westbury's Holy Trinity church in watercolour.

Mobirise

Down to the sea

Richard draws out most of his paintings using ink - usually applied with a matchstick. This produces an interesting effect once the watercolour is applied. Here's a picture to help us look forward to some warm weather - can't come too soon!

Mobirise

Whitesands beach

Here are a couple of watercolours by Linda Castree. Both in one of her favourite holiday locations - Pembrokeshire. First up is a view along Whitesands beach near St David's.

Mobirise

Lakeside view

Now, a postcard-sized view inspired by a waterfowl lake near Newport.

Mobirise

The London Eye

Here's a dramatic view of this iconic landmark, captured in watercolour by Renée Thornton.

Mobirise

Quayside activity

Renée enjoys the impact of night scenes. The mixture of bright colours and deep contrasts make this painting of the quayside of a Greek fishing village really come to life. You can almost hear the hubbub of the waterside cafés.

Mobirise

Malcesine Castle, Lake Garda

How about a visit to the Italian Lakes? Malcesine is about the most picturesque Lake Garda resort: a pretty little medieval town centre clusters around the harbour and Scaligero castle.  Painted in watercolour by Keith Edwards.

Mobirise

Cathedral Cove, New Zealand

A quick trip to the other side of the globe to the Coromandel peninsular in New Zealand. The famous Cathedral Cove is one of the “must visit” sites in the North Island and it receives around 150,000 visitors per year so it's a lucky break to see it without people. Again in watercolour by Keith Edwards

Mobirise

Christmas Roses

June Crowe has used watercolour to carefully reproduce these lovely hellebores picked from her garden.

Mobirise

Gold Hill in Shaftsbury

Another work in watercolour from June - a view of Gold Hill in Shaftsbury. Can't help thinking I've see this view before - and not just in the Hovis advert (1973 for those that can remember!).
