Plein Air Watercolor and Watercolor Sketching in NYC June 6-8, 2016

Where does the time go ?  It has been over a month since my last post and I have been busy as ever working with new students . It has been both a privilege and joy for me . I just love when I get to see students  having A HA ! moments succeeding where they thought otherwise.
    We covered both working in watercolor and sketching in ink and watercolor . Fun !
   I will be teaching a Plein Air Watercolor and Watercolor Sketching Workshop on June 6-8 from 9:30 - 4 pm   if you are interested. You can get more information on my website. Some of you may remember Steve Hall from the UK was doing this class but unfortunately he had to cancel so since I have the time already blocked out , I decided to do the class myself. I hope you will be able to join me .

Here is a lower Manhattan scene done with a sharpened stick and permanent ink with a wash of watercolor over it . I hope you can see the quick spontaneous sketch come through , so much fun to do.

Here is the same view , this one done with just a brush and watercolor .  I hope you enjoy seeing and comparing them , see you next time.
