Brian Smith is another well-known face in the village because of his hugely successful Art Classes run in the Old School. Brian will be producing the 2011 Christmas Card for Dore Village Society.
Brian is Sheffield-born, and works chiefly in the Yorkshire Region. He works in a number of media, but especially in water-colour. His painting for the 2011 Christmas Card is yet to be released but the image below (taken from the Gallery section of his web-site: Brian Smith – Fine Art and Design) is a taste of what might be to come.
