Art in Action 2012

Well the sun really shone yesterday at Art in Action at Waterperry House and Gardens in Oxfordshire.  This is my 4th year  now as a visitor and thanks once again to my friend Lynn for driving.   It's a great way of seeing artists and their work up close and personal.

A particular favourite of ours in the Painting marquee was Turkish artist Ali Yanya who does the most amazing watercolours.  Here he is giving a demonstration of his watercolour techniques where he layers images of figures making them seem almost transparent. He made it look so damned easy.

There were quite a few sculptures out on the lawns.  This bird is made of recycled beer cans woven through chicken wire.

One of the dog sculptures was so real it was set upon by a real dog. 

Loved these wiry ladies.

A really great arty day made all the better for the lovely sunshine. Shenanigans at the end of the day trying to find the car in the car park which was a disused air field.  We walked the full length of the air strip only to find we were parked on the other air strip in the opposite direction.
