Monthly Demonstration Sept 2016

After the summer break, we had almost a full house at our first meeting this year.   Alison Board shared with us her multimedia technique in a very interesting and entertaining demonstration.  Please see below the brilliant pen picture of the demonstration by Angela Vizard.

Using Saunders Waterford paper of 200lb
A Honey Bee on a Thistle will soon be found
An interesting afternoon was about to begin.
With a description of a bee translated into Latin
Which was ripped into strips and stuck down with Bindex glue
It looked pretty random but I think she knew what to do.

To form the base she used watercolour ground
Creating another dimension kept us all spellbound
Masking out the foliage and some of the Bee
Using the edge of the ruling pen is surely the key
Watercolour came next,green gold, cobalt violet and hematite
Soon the body of the Bee gradually came into sight.

Then water soluble pen for definition of the eye
Amazing results with the water spray,this I must try
She was full of good tips and useful information
Answering our questions without any hesitation
A very clever lady with a perfect technique
From Actress to Artist her style is truly unique.

U tube is my next step, I’m hungry for more
I’ll view her in action and recreate what I saw!!!!
