Tom Groom Award and Dominic Carlton Sketchbook Award 2021
We had a great Critique meeting with Frank Walters who is a very good watercolourist, but also paints in oils and acrylics. He gave us a very informed and encouraging critique. We had about 15 entries for the Tom Groom and about 8 for the sketchbook Award, which was very good. The Tom Groom Award - any painting framed or mounted under the subject of "Inland Waterways" was won by Liz Brown with a beautiful limited pallette rendition of a canal with longboats moored. Highly commended were Kay Gale and Margaret Cairns. The Dominic Carlton Sketchbook Award - for the best Sketchbook was won by Margaret Cairns with a wonderfully interesting sketchbook crammed with sketches and paintings.
