Heather Jollife Demonstration seas and Skies in watercolour7.9.11

The September meeting at Virginia Water Art Society saw a demonstration of seas and skies by Heather Jollife in watercolour. Heather's demonstration showed the way in which she handles her brushes to obtain the different effects of both waves and clouds and we were also shown the use of wax in order to leave highlights in  the water  which was very effective.

Runnymede Art Fair Promoting Virginia Water Art Society

I spent the day on the meads at Runnymede on Bank Holiday Monday promoting the Virginia Water Art Society giving out complimentary tickets for people to come and see our demonstrations and giving out the web site address for prospective members to see what we are about.  It was a glorious day and I spoke to lots of local people who showed interest in our Society and hopefully we will see some new faces at our next meeting.  I also spoke to the exhibitors about their work and we may possibly see some of them at future demonstrations.
