This January, with Covid variety omicron cruising the country, we asked our artists to go out separately and create art reflecting winter weather and winter life. We are surprised to find how far people have travelled! We have images from Yorkshire, Norfolk, and Sussex Beaches, as well as various London outdoor spaces. Our artists have produced their customary varied interpretations of the winter scene, please enjoy!

It was also pointed out to us that Sky Arts have started a new series of Landscape Artist of the Year and Channel 5 a new 20 episode series of Watercolour Challenge, and we thought that many of our artists would like to know of these painterly - and sometimes pleinair - programmes which they can watch from the comfort of their homes.
Details of our February activity will follow before long.
