Stewart discussed the finer points of Framing and gave a thought provoking session looking at the relationship to the painting to be framed, the mount and the frame/moulding.
He also showed the audience a number of framed paintings and invited comments and critique as to what the audience liked or disliked regarding the finished article.
Needless to say there were mixed comments which tended to support Stewart's opening statement "there are no rules"
At tonight's meeting John gave us an interesting and entertaining demonstration of line and wash as well as bringing along his sketch books for us to look at.
Many thanks to John for a very enjoyable evening
