George and Venitia's Studio: They had extended their double garage, added a dividing wall and created a space more than big enough for the two of them to paint in, including a stunning view over the Bay. 
George paints lovely local scene in watercolour and Venitia paints great oil landscapes. Venitia kindly hosted coffee and great cheese scones.
