The Peterhead Informal Art Group held its Scottish Week Artists Challenge at the Rescue Hall on Wednesday, July 25.

The theme for 2018 was ‘Landscapes’ and all participants worked hard to create their own masterpieces.

One of the group’s country members, Tilly Farnham, was a semi-finalist in this year’s BBC Big Painting Challenge.

She painted on the day and also judged the adult competition in the afternoon.

Prior to the competition, members of the group recreated George Strachan’s ink drawing of Broad Street in 1890, in technicolour and there is no doubt that it helped to inspire the challenge participants.

The winners were as follows:
