Watercolor…Finally an update!

Sorry dear friends…it has been awhile since I have updated this Blog. Life and illness can get in the way of best laid plans, but enough of that.

I believe in this economic downturn it has been and continues to be a good time for me to work on improving my techniques. After all, art is a life long study. I remember reading that an artist’s studio is also a place to study as well as paint.

Though commissions and art sales have been slow, like all of you, I’m waiting for the economy to pick back up. My watercolor portrait workshops have been sucessful and I have received a lot of positive feed back from the students.

I have become determined to be able to draw faster and still maintain a good accurate rendering of what I’m about to paint. I believe this only comes with practice… I now go to weekly open (no instruction) life drawing session where a group of artist will hire a model and we draw and paint from life. More about this in later blogs…
