It has been a year since I took the watercolor workshop from Anne Abgott. It was a wonderful workshop. The last day we had only half-day to start this painting. We were all given color and black and white photographs to work from, and Anne gave a demonstration on painting the melons and the silver and cup. None of us got much done, and I really wanted to finish this. I re-read my notes from the workshop, and re-studied her book "Daring Color" to refresh my memory on her technique. It is fun to do watercolor again! And I'm enjoying working in my studio at my drafting table that was in storage for 4 years.
Welcome to my art blog! This is where I share my explorations and learning experiences in pastel, watercolor and oil painting. I have had this blog for about six or more years. I am currently entering many national and regional juried art shows. I have a website and sell my work from there as well. I started a group called Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters a year ago and it has grown to about 40 active painters! Each year brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. I have made many friends among other art bloggers and enjoy visiting their blogs. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and click on the links to my website and the plein air painters to see more!
