Eight - Arizona PBS AZ Artbeat Watercolor Workshop!

This workshop was held October 22 in the PBS Eight Studio in the Walter Cronkite Building on the ASU Phoenix campus. The participants were given several ideas, technics and tips before working on their own watercolors. The completed paintings were then placed in a presentation kit for taking home by the proud artists. It was a fun day introducing some folks to the magic of watercolor painting. Special thanks to Priscilla Lundberg for assisting me! My new "Dreamy Draw Overlook" painting (image 16x20) was on display as an example of our wonderful Sonoran Desert landscape in transparent watercolor. See the album of photos on my facebook page Snapshots in Watercolor.
