Local artist Cary Outis held a drawing workshop in the church hall of St Andrew’s in Witchford at the weekend.
It was part of a series of community events planned towards funding an extension to the church.
Feedback included “excellent tuition; he was very clear and inspiring” and “after he had clearly described strategies I was amazed to see my second attempt looked like a real drawing”.
There was a sketchers’ competition as well. The 26 entries were displayed in the church and the first prize was awarded to Tony Brown for his drawing of a horse.
Three entrants came second: two by Sue Thompson (flowers and a man relaxing on a sofa) and a drawing of two ladies sitting on a bench by Don Beards.
