    Hi Rona,
    Thanks very much for this. Have started watching the BBC series and am enjoying it very much, even tempted to try a self-portrait.
    Regards Christine

    Thanks! I’ve joined the weekly NPG themed lunchtime sessions, which have been great.

    Thanks Rona,

    All great suggestions, will forward this on if that is ok with you. Hope you are enjoying snow in the hills! Take care from Rain and Zak the Jack (Rain’s support work buddy who is now glued to her side even when she is going ‘live’ art teaching and trying to write reports)

    Stay safe and sane
