Festival fun wasn’t just restricted to Kidwells Park on Saturday as Maidenhead Painting Club held an Open Day.
An array of watercolour paintings adorned the walls of St Joseph’s Church Hall, in Cookham Road, as the club opened its doors to the public.
Art enthusiasts had the chance to buy any masterpieces that took their fancy while visitors were also encouraged to pick up a paintbrush and paint their own interpretation of a flower display.
Maidenhead Painting Club chairman Liz Cooper, 78, said: “We get all sorts of different interpretations and you can see there’s a real contrast in colours.”
The club, which has more than 100 members, has been running in Maidenhead since 1978 and holds weekly classes around the town.
Fellow club member Lynn John, who lives in St Mark’s Crescent, added: “Everyone at the club is really friendly and it’s a great place to be.
“It’s very uplifting.”
