VISIT TO ANGELA'S GARDEN

Posted by chrishorder on August 8, 2019 at 5:10 PM

WE ALL ENJOYED ANOTHER VISIT TO ANGELA'S GARDEN AND FOUND YET ANOTHER SUBJECT TO PAINT.  LOTS OF FLOWERS NEXT TO THAT OLD APPLE TREE, THE POTTING SHED, A SCULPTURE WITH HANGING BASKET AND EVEN THE GREENHOUSE.

HERE WE ARE SHELTERING UNDER THE GAZEBO.  APART FROM THIS BRIEF SHOWER WE HAD A LOVELY AFTERNOON.

MANY THANKS TO ANGELA AND PHILIP FOR THEIR HOSPITALITY.

GRUNDY PARK FUN DAY SATURDAY 20 APRIL

On a glorious St. George's Fun Day at Grundy Park on Easter Saturday the LVAS manned a stall in order to advertise our Society to the general public.  Members demonstrated verious forms of art techniques such as painting sunflowers in acrylic, a Labrador dog in soft pastels and for the children a unique plate spinning concept and two large St. George and the Dragons to colour in with felt tip pens.  The general public were also invited to leaf through a selection of wonderful sketch books, a box of unframed paintings together with a small selection of framed paintings provided by members.

On Friday 22nd February he wowed a packed audience with his watercolour demonstration, working from a photograph of a well known local scene in Broxbourne (opposite St. Augustine's Church).  Keith also brought examples of his work covering a wide variety of subjects which was admired by all during a tea & coffee break.

ANGELA'S GARDEN

Last Wednesday's visit to Angela's garden.   Everyone enjoyed a lovely afternoon.  There was tea and cake.  Even some bubbly.  Many thanks Angela.



TRIP TO PIN MILL

Posted by chrishorder on July 6, 2018 at 9:45 AM

 

On Wednesday 14 members went by minibus to Pin Mill (plus 2 by car) and enjoyed a pleasantly warm day with lovely sea breezes.   I have not been there before and was delighted to find that it is a painters' paradise, providing you like painting boats.   After tea/coffee we all found various positions for sketching, which kept us amused for an hour or two.  Then we all went to The Butt and Oyster for lunch and you will see from the picture that they provided us with really tasty food.   Most of us tried another sketch although some probably just relaxed.  I think everyone agreed that we had a lovely day. The journeys in both directions were good. 

Many thanks to Frances for organising the transport.  We were very sorry that you and Russell were not able to be with us.
