Thanks to Ruth Tune for mentioning this:


Pictures from Terry Harrison's talk

Terry brought along many of his materials and books for sale, and executed a watercolour painting using some less common techniques including elements of light on dark, and using thicker applications of paint then pushed aside to reveal a pattern over a previous layer.




Next month, on 4th October, we have Peter Horrocks giving a talk on pigments.

Before that, though, we've our last plein air day of the year on 22nd September, where we're out at Leintwardine. There's also our annual lunch on 23rd September - booking forms for this are on the Membership and Exhibitions Form page. However, there's more! On 12th September there's a watercolour workshop with John Jarvis. Again, the form is still online and on the same page.
