THORNTON-le-Dale was the focus for a painting challenge day involving art enthusiasts from across Ryedale.
Organised by the Vale of Pickering Art Club, the event is held each summer as part of a series of outdoor painting days.
This year, the village was chosen as the subject matter with completed work reviewed by local art teacher Stephen Broadbent and his wife, Joan, at the club’s evening meeting at Pickering Memorial Hall.
Chairman Diana Smith said: “The challenge day is something the club organises for members each year who come from across the area.
“Club members voted for their favourite painting and the prize for best picture was awarded to Renee Clark.”
Diana said the club meets on the second Thursday of the month at the Memorial Hall, 7pm-9pm. The club’s next event is an annual exhibition from Saturday at the Memorial Hall.
