Sketchbook Workshop

I just had a sketchbook workshop and I had a blast! i LOVE being around people who want to learn, and are excited about lines, color and shadows, and paint, and sketching....and on and on.
The 12 there were ALL the above. They were all so awesome and did a great job. We had some laughs.  We had a hick up though. My 2 year old Air conditioner quit! we were in a 90 degree room with 12 laughing talking women! WHAT A HOOT! I LOVED it.
The first day we worked inside. On the 2nd day we went out to Rock'n B and B and sketched the lavender and the old house. Then we went to the court house lawn and sat under the shade trees and sketched there.  I hope to have another one in about 5-6 months. I need to look at the calendar and get it set up.  It will be limited to no more than 12.  I hope you can join us sometime in the future!

Sketches from Kerrville Tx

I spent a week in Kerrville, TX at another SKB workshop.  This one was called TexArt.  It was a great week.  David Rankin was the watercolor instructor and i really enjoyed his class.  He is an awesome instructor.  We did gray studies using paynes gray watercolor.  We also all did this same snow scene.  They all turned out great.
We also went to the Musuem of Western art in Kerrville and saw the beautiful paintings about Charles Goodnight by Lee Cable. They are awesome. Then Friday Night we went to Fredericksburg to the Hanna Gallery to see the Society of Animals exhibit. Wow! What artists they are.  If you are close by go see these awesome art pieces.
