Wrapping Up the Two-Day Star Harbor Workshop

Second Day of Star Harbor Watercolor Workshop

Second Day of Star Harbor Watercolor Workshop

I’m exhausted but very fulfilled by what I experienced the past two days in Star Harbor, Texas.  The Watercolor Society there hosted me for a two-day still-life workshop.  Here they are, finishing up their paintings from yesterday and preparing to begin anew today.  We visited the historic Flagg House in Malakoff early this morning, and found plenty of inspiration in the antiques on view there as well.  Below is a quick demo sketch I did of a portion of  the Flagg House:

Several of the participants wanted some guidance on sketching architecture in watercolor, particularly brick facades.  

Thanks for reading.  Eureka Springs School of the Arts is next.  I’ll be doing a five-day watercolor plein air workshop there, my fourth year in a row.  I absolutely love that Victorian mountain town and all that is has to offer to the willing painter.

I paint in order to remember.

I journal because I feel that I am alone.

I blog to remind myself that I am not alone.
