Norfolk artist Judith Key was the guest speaker at July’s meeting and  her talk “A Funny Thing Happened On My Way To The Coast” was an amusing and entertaining account of some of  her experiences whilst out painting along the Norfolk coast.

During her talk she drew a number of comical sketches illustrating some of the hazards that she had encountered along the way, attracting the unwanted attention and curiosity of  both  humans and animals.

Judith also runs a series of art courses with  the Norfolk landscape providing an ever-changing vista for those wishing to discover the joy of painting.  Although some of  her students may prefer the comfort of a warm dry studio, Judith’s approach is a little more alfresco and at times not for the faint hearted with waterproofs being a necessary accompaniment to easels, brushes and watercolours. Amongst every group of would-be Turners and Constables Judith confessed that there is always one character, one person more possessed of artistic temperament than artistic talent and although these students may not be best remembered for their artwork they do provide a rich source of amusing stories and anecdotes.
