The Society was formed in 2005 by eleven founder members - there are currently twenty. It is anticipated that in due course membership will rise to 25. This is for practical reasons as there are limited venues for a large group. However, it is hoped, in the course of time, the society will operate on a much larger scale. As well as promoting watercolour as a serious medium, the society hopes to show the diversity of technique; ranging from botanical illustration across the spectrum to abstraction. There is no definitive style as a group! Membership is open to artists living and working in Cornwall. New members (on application) are voted in by the society. According to the rules laid down in the constitution.
