Watercolour silhouette painting by Dot Humphries

Droitwich library hosts a new mini-exhibition of DAN member Dorothy Humphries. She will have her watercolour silhouette ‘The Goose Girl’ on display in period of 3 – 17 September on the ground floor of the library.

Dorothy said about her picture: “I painted it from a photograph taken about 13 years ago, of my Grand daughter Lydia Alice, she was feeding a swan or goose (can’t remember!) in Vines Park. I painted it soon after taking the photograph, remembered it and decided to do it again, I enjoyed doing it the first time so much.”
