JUNE 19, 2012: In May I taught an all day workshop for the Art Association here in Jackson Hole called “Splash and Pour – Watercolor without the Fear”. And I mean it! It is a non-threatening day to play with watercolor in a way you have never tried before (or to continue developing skills from previous experiences.) People always exclaim that watercolor is so difficult. Well, in a playful atmosphere it may still be difficult, but it is lots of fun. Be prepared to come home with blue fingers, it can be messy. Recently I had a client, who was watching me paint in Horizon Gallery, ask me how I knew what was going to happen. And I replied “Experience”. (Though in reality many times I turn an unexpected “splotch” into a happy accident. Experience helps in that instance too.
More on the Watercolor+Wax week-long workshop that followed Splash and Pour in my next Musing.
