On Oct. 1 I taught a local watercolor workshop and the group asked if we could meet the second Sat. of every month. I was impressed with their desire to learn and practice this challenging medium. And I’m excited about the possibilities from working with such a group of dedicated watercolorists.
If you live nearby and would like to join us, I’m going to be offering watercolor classes at Anson County Center, 605 McLaurin St, from 9am-12pm and 1-4pm. No classes in Dec. Monthly meetings resume Jan. 2012.
Sat., Nov. 12 Workshop Choices Are:
9am -12pm- “Come Test The Waters” is for the absolute beginner. A perfect way to see if watercolor is for you without investing in the supplies. Watercolor supplies are provided. Cost: $55. Class Size limited to 10.
1-4pm “Back To Basics” – For those with watercolor experience, but maybe it’s been awhile since you’ve painted. Supplies not included. Cost $35. Class size limited to 12.

The only thing more exciting than watercoloring at an angle,
is watercoloring at an angle before sixty+ pairs of eyes
High Country Watermedia Society (HCWS) during "Less Is More" watercolor demonstration by guest artist, June Rollins, at Cheap Joes, in Boone, NC on Aug. 13, 2011
"Less Is More" is a direct-paintng method while working at an angle.
Using gravity to increase color-mixing on the paper yields fresh, vibrant, created colors.
C'mon, live a little. Take a risk. Hope to see you at the next "Less Is More" demonstration & watercolor workshop. If I can do it, you can too
HCWS is a super-friendly, energetic artist guild offering members many opportunities and activities.

For the past five weeks I’ve devoted my creative energy into preparing and teaching a beginning watercolor workshop series at ALS, www.artistleague.org. We had our last class this past Friday and an e-mail I received from one of my students, which I believe is representative of the group, confirmed the effort had been worthwhile.
I have really enjoyed your watercolor classes and am so happy that I took them. I am no longer afraid to sit down to a clean sheet of watercolor paper. It will not even take discipline, because it is something I want to do. During my drive yesterday after class, the first thing I noticed was the late afternoon sunlight through the trees onto our lawn— it was beautiful and I thought – that would make a nice watercolor!
The joy of having artist’s eyes!
I’m changing gears now, shifting my focus and preparing for my next painting. I chose the subject today. Or, she may have chosen me.
How did I come by this exquisite model?
Thank you for the memories and the inspiration.
I have always felt that one of the most important objectives of a teacher is to show you new ways of seeing, rather than how to paint.
Enjoy The Journey,
I had the priviledge of working with twelve uniquely talented, experienced watercolorists recently at ALS (www.artistleague.org).
I am so glad I altered my original intention of having everyone paint the same subject I demonstrated.
I was blown away by their sureness of individualistic expression of subject and technique.
Plus, as always, the teacher walked away wtih some new ideas too, courtesy of an exceptional group of artists.
Enjoy the journey!
