Stephen David says “because I like the great outdoors and wildlife I did this picture of Chris Packham which slightly appealed to me. I am not sure what to make of him, as one does not expect naturalists to be celebrities”

Bryan King says “one of my favourite TV programmes is the detective series "Vera". Set in Northumberland I really enjoy the complex plots and well worked characters. Added to this are the stunning locations - particularly the Northumberland coastline - so I hope this painting of Bamburgh Castle meets the brief.

Jean Maxwell has been enjoying I different farming programmes, especially Our Yorkshire Farm, and Escape to the Farm. This is a more local scene but represents what I enjoy about the programmes

Chairman Jean challenged us to produce a copy of her friend's photo. This is Jean Taylor's version - she says it was "A really difficult one, but I could have been 'drunk on the Deben' after finishing it. Good job I stuck to tea"

Cathy woodhead

Now this is a dragon...but came too late for me to add last week. The beautiful dragonfly is by Cathy Woodhead.

Paula Hill

By Paula Hill. Paula says: Here is my submission for this weeks challenge. Girls dancing around a maypole! Although I had an idea of what I wanted to achieve subject wise, the colour scheme kind of evolved into a more contemporary colour way with an ethereal style. On A3 landscape in acrylics.

Stephen David

Stephen David says: I have known several pubs called The Green Man, and they do good wholesome food, so I have always associated the Green Man with food.

Jenny Taylor

Jenny Taylor produced this lively image .

Jean Taylor

Jean Taylor says: I couldn't cope with a maypole, so they danced around a tree.

Bryan King

Bryan King says: I've submitted a photograph for this week's challenge rather than a painting. A character long associated with May Day is Jack-in-the-Green (often referred to as the Green Man), a symbol of rebirth and renewal. Although believed to be pagan in origin, the Green Man appears in many religious buildings including this 14thC roof boss from the cloisters of Norwich Cathedral. Photographed by me a few years ago.
