With Terry Harrison at the Search Press " Meet The Artists " event yesterday.
You may think after an exciting few weeks with the SWA Society of Women Artists exhibition and my book launch for " How to Paint Colour and Light in Watercolour" at the Mall Galleries in London I would now be back to painting in my studio and working but no! Yesterday I made my way to a " Meet the Artists " event arranged by my publishers and it was a fantastic occasion.
Celebrating years of successful publishing with a variety of versatile and talented authors Search Press really did create a brilliant day to remember. Many artists were invited out of which there were ongoing demonstrations during the day. I happily agreed to the invitation to demonstrate and share my techniques.To meet well known authors who have far more experience than I in the literary world was wonderful. Sharing a glass of champagne in sunshine is always a lovely way to spend a summer day but having the treat of watching others paint in all mediums and in so many styles really was a feast for this artists eye.
To mention artists I enjoyed in one post on my blog seems unfair as their names could get lost so I am going to add separate entries of some of the paintings and demonstrations I enjoyed during the day. .
It does feel strange being surrounded by artists whose names I have heard of for so long and now being a part of their world. Strange but very wonderful.
I left with numerous promises to get in touch with agents,artists,galleries and many more exciting contacts. My future becomes more thrilling with every single day that passes but now I am even more enthusiastic to work on my second book which really is going to be full of surprises.
Search Press really are an amazing company and I am so thrilled to be under their wings.
