It was a great opening reception last Thursday, well attended by about 100 people. Thanks to everyone who came and supported the gallery and me! It has been very exciting and an honor to be featured, and especially to see my larger watercolor paintings framed and hung together!
I will also also be doing a workshop at the gallery October 16 & 17. Teaching is something I have been interested in doing for quite some time and I'm really looking forward to it! The workshop is called "Bold & Dynamic Watercolor." I plan to talk about my techniques for creating my work as all as some general information about watercolor in general: papers, brushes, pigments, and ratio of pigment to water. I will also cover how I go about designing my paintings, touching on design and composition. I welcome beginners and intermediate painters. If you are interested click here for more information and here to sign up at the Winter Garden Art Association's web site. If you don't live in the area, and would like to come, there is a quaint bed and breakfast inn, The Historic Edgewater Hotel, right downtown. The hotel and the gallery are in the heart of the historic district of Winter Garden.
