Demonstration By Trevor Osbourne 3.2.15

The members of Virginia Water Art Society 
enjoyed the demonstration given by Trevor Osbourne this evening. Trevor showed us his method of creating chaos and then turning it into a portrait of his dog.  After applying some masking fluid to a    pre drawn sketch then using inks to outline the darkest of the darks, Trevor used acrylic inks in  bright colours in an abstract way, and then the final stages were done with pastels.  Lots of tips and hints were generously given during his demonstration and we were all thoroughly entertained 
Thank you Trevor

Stephen Foster Demonstration 6th January Pallet Knife Landscape in Acrylic & Oil

Stephen Foster's demonstration using only a pallet knife was a first for the Virginia Water Art Society members the first coat was done in Acrylic with the pallet knife and then the final coat was done in oil. Stephen explained his methods as he went, he said that by using only the pallet knife mad for a freer looser style of painting which in turn allowed for more expression from the Artist, and that by using a first coat in Acrylic guided the way for the oils and showed where improvements could be made in the final coat of paint.  Thank You Stephen for a very enjoyable demonstration.
