The last few weeks I have been preparing for a workshop I will be teaching at the 127 SoBo Gallery in Winter Garden, Florida, with the Winter Garden Art Association. There are still spots available! It is open to artists of all levels. I will be discussing how I approach my paintings focusing on strong design, composition, and the bold use of color. We will be doing a number of painting exercises, to get the feel of different ways to paint in watercolor, and I will discuss the nuances of different brushes, papers and pigments. I will demonstrate my painting Star Struck which students will paint in the workshop.
This is a 2 day workshop October 16 & 17 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The Historic Downtown Winter Garden is so lovely and if you are not from the area and would like to stay over, there is a quaint older historic hotel, The Historic Edgewater Hotel, right near the workshop venue! In its hey day Winter Garden was major travel destination by train for recreational activities on Lake Apopka as well as having a booming citrus industry. At one point it was the largest shipping point in the world for citrus. Now it's home to a city that is preserving and honoring it's heritage, a number of well-known restaurants, a theatre with live productions throughout the year and now, an active art gallery!
