"Martini Sunrise" accidental idea

Not tequila sunrise, but  “Martini Sunrise.”  

I inadvertently leaned my martini painting up against a recent landscape. Top half is an oil; bottom a watercolor.  I thought …….hmmmmmm…… I might have something here.  I think I will have to paint this combo.

"Sunken Treasure" watercolor class demo

Tried a new surface.  Arches watercolor board.  It's quite nice.  Fun to work with.  Stains a little easier with some colors, but overall I'd give it a two thumbs up.  No buckling because the entire sheet is glued to a board.  No need to tape or staple to a support.  Comes in 32" x 40" sheets.  Quite reasonable.  "Sunken Treasure" 8-1/2" x 11"

Watercolor Show reception at Rancho Mirage Library.

Had fun at the Rancho Mirage Public Library reception for the three watercolor ladies.... Robin St. Louis, Moira Johannessen and yours truly.  Unbelievably, Solveig Rimstad who lives in Norway sent her Palm Desert cousin Inger Yarijian with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for me. That's the second time she has done this. Thank you Solveig!  Inger took a picture, I thought, but it is missing from my camera. Must not have pushed the button hard enough.

No two artists intrepret a scene the same way...Friday's acrylic class

It's always so much fun to me how everyone paints something so completely different from the same photo. Love that.   I think I'm finally recovered from my two week trip to Michigan.  Took awhile to get back in the swing of things.  I really had fun with family and friends and the two workshops I taught.  Working on schedules now for four workshops there next year.  Can't wait to go back.

"Fish in a Glass" watercolor class demo inspired by Mark Adams

I love using Mark Adams' watercolors as a reference for teaching. The simple shapes and beautiful washes are great exercises for learning to paint solid washes, varying color washes and light to dark washes....the true basics of the craft.
