To night at Virginia Water Art Society Salliann Putman came do give us a critique of members work, the very varied work of the Artists of Virginia Water Art Society was presented to Sallyann who herself has been a life member for many years. We all learned a lot from Salliann's comments and from her experienced eye and above all her encouragement was much appreciated.

A compilation of Paintings By The Late Rodney Lucas including his own demonstration for the Society and a Portrait of him by another Artist
It is with great sadness that we say good by to our President Rodney Lucas who passed away on 10th September 2014. The funeral was held at the Henley on Thames Woodland Burial Grounds photographed below, sheep graze the fields and red Kites are abundant and in a few years from now the natural landscape will be covered in a forest. On the day the sun was shining and the landscape was peaceful, 7 members of the Society went to pay our respects and the funeral was well attended. Refreshments were served in the Maltsters Arms afterwards. Rodney was such an integral part of the Society and much loved and appreciated for all the wonderful work he did for the Society over so many years. He was almost a founder member in the 1960's and held the longest membership. Last year we reversed an earlier decision not to have any more honorary members and mad him an honorary member to express our gratitude.

A small group of Virginia Water Art Society members attended a workshop with Anne Williams during one of our Monthly painting days in the church hall Anne very kindly agreed to show those new to acrylics how to go about using the medium some chose to do their own composition and some use a reference picture supplied by Anne lots of materials were supplied for those who did not have their own. Lots of fun was had during the three hour session and everyone said how they enjoyed the workshop and had learned something from the experience So thank you Anne for giving your time and experience

Yet again we were rescued By Kim Page who came to demonstrate when the scheduled demonstrator was unable to make it, fortunately for us, as we are always pleased to see Kim demonstrate and tonight we were not disappointed. Kim's landscape in watercolour was amazing his technique and expert abilities had us all enthralled this evening whilst we watched him paint and at the same time he explained the process. The resulting painting was fabulous and we are all looking forward to seeing Kim again. Thank you Kim
