January Outing to the Wallace Collection

January's outing was to the Wallace Collection in Manchester Square.
12 people attended in total, although one forgot her glasses and another was distracted by the church (Spanish Place) on the way there and arrived at lunchtime.
The collection is of course superb and our artists benefitted from this by sketching from the pictures and of course the armour.

Some people managed to go to the special exhibition of water colours commissioned by the East India company, again a magnificent display.

The cafe in the courtyard was rather crowded, not helped by a block booking for a later cream tea, but some of us managed to get tables, where we were able to exchange gossip and of course sketching tips.

Altogether a good winter outing.

The next outing is to Southwark Cathedral on Tuesday 3 March. More details to follow.
