Demonstration and talk by Ronnie Ireland 5.10.16



Well were we entertained tonight or what?!!
Ronnie Ireland Brilliant Artist Entertainer and Creative Tutor
Ronnie stepped in for us this evening after we were let down by our original booking and we were so please that he did, his talk and demonstration was aimed at giving us information on how to discover our own creativity by allowing chance to play a big role in guiding our direction enabling a less controlling and more emotional response to the mark making process.  He encourages new approaches, energetic painting and risk taking with our art which is very refreshing and inspiring.  Thank you Ronnie

50th ANNIVERSARY VIRGINIA WATER ART SOCIETY BOAT TRIP CELEBRATIONS


What wonderful weather we had today on the Thames celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Virginia Water Art Society members of the Society spent the afternoon cruising down the river towards Windsor where we all indulged in cream teas scones cakes and sandwiches.  Alan Mar provided and proposed a toast to the longevity of the Art Society and talked briefly about the founder member Pat Hare. The sun shone all day and everyone enjoyed the afternoon enormously. 
Our Thanks to Alan for organising the trip so brilliantly and providing the toast, also to Doug and his wife who between them made and decorated the cake.

Aurora Spain o The History of Pigment & Successful Colour Mixing 7.9.2016



Virginia Water Art Society welcomed Aurora Spain this evening to talk to us about the History of Pigment and Successful Colour Mixing from early cave painting with organic colours up to the present day using synthetic colours. Talking about the origins of colours used by some of the old masters and explaining their failings and eventual demise and substitution by modern day pigments.  Also talking about todays colour mixing and the many variations and hues obtainable using a limited pallett.  The members of VWAS enjoyed the the very informative talk.  Thank you Aurora
