Artist Roland Lee stands by his award-winning painting at the 2014 Sears Invitational Art Show at Dixie State University in Utah

I submitted two paintings to the Sears Invitational Art Show at Dixie State University. Both paintings were done as demonstrations at recent watercolor painting workshops. My watercolor painting “Irish Welcome” depicted my interpretation of the entry to a thatched cottage with red windows and door. The idea came from a sketchbook study done in pencil on location in Ireland. The second watercolor painting in the exhibit, “Shakespeare Memories” was stimulated by a visit to Shakespeare’s Stratford-Upon-Avon in the UK. Both were painted during a recent workshop on how to work up a studio painting from sketches.
