I enjoyed spending the last two days with some wonderful artists at my February watercolor workshop. I took a different approach with this group, and we did a lot more hands-on work actually completing two paintings in class. It was a test run of sorts for me, since I usually approach my classes with a little more discussion and theory using powerpoint demonstrations. This time I used actual examples and demonstrated on the spot. I think it was successful judging by the student comments.
Students included: front row – Shari Cannon, Lola Krummenacher, Karen Bettilyon, Gwendolyn Joy Mitchell, Luzon Glines. Back row – Gary Fawson, Roland Lee, Glen Bessenette. Not pictured – Viona Wilson, who won Best of Show at the Southern Utah Watercolor Society juried show currently on display in Mesquite Nevada. We are all proud of her.
Karen Bettilyon (above), a fine watercolor painter, became a second-time collector by purchasing my demonstration painting from January called “Classic Clouds.”
