A couple of days after the Greenbrier Workshop in Lewisburg, I did a One Day Watercolor Workshop with the Pocahontas County Artist Guild.

Sally generously donated a painting for a raffle to benefit their Art Guild.

Photos from my watercolor workshop, titled "CLOUDS AND WATER" for the Greenbrier Artist of Lewisburg, West Virginia. This was a 3 day workshop from October 1st thru October 3rd, 2018.

Below are the some of the paintings from the workshop. 
   I was very impressed with this group of artists because they all worked very hard.  
They did multiple paintings of each of the different techniques.
I showed them how to do big cumulus clouds with hard and soft edges, soft clouds, streaky skys, stormy skys, night skys and every other kind of sky.   Plus water reflections in still water and rough water, and ocean waves.

They all said that they enjoyed the workshop and learned lot.  
Of course I was very pleased.
What do you think of their paintings?

(I'm not going to name the students)

Here are a few photos of some of the demos.  
There are too many to show them all.

Last Thursday we had a visitor and this is her painting. I believe this was her first try at painting with watercolor.

During the months of July and August, my students may bring in a friend (grandchildren & children also) for $20.  This includes a loaner palette and brushes.  The only thing they need to supply is their watercolor paper and photos of what they want to paint.  You can also put your tables together and share with them.

In my Summer Classes I am striving for more individual attention.  I will be doing mini demos as required from each student.  You may work on unfinished works and/or paint something new.

We still do a critique of your work at the beginning of the class.  This is usually what you have done in class, but it also may be something that you did at home.

Here is a Cat done by Tracy at Home!  Really nice Tracy.
