2018 MONTHLY
MEMBERS MEETING
Margaret Pettis

March Member Meeting
Margaret Pettis
February 6, 2018
7:00 PM

Are you ready for an evening of exploration in line and wash?
Come join me for a chance to delve into ink sketching techniques then tackle a variety of quick sketches that will help underpin and inspire your later work in watercolor or ink wash. I plan to introduce you to what I call ‘shadow hunting’ and the gathering of ‘a palette of lines.’  I promise you will leave the short workshop with a quiver of new ideas to augment your own practice of searching for and memorizing what you see afield.

I think good design and clear focal points are necessay components for success in competitive juried exhibitions. I have had the advantage of being able to learn from numerous nationally renowned watercolorists and have lots of experience with entering shows (have lots of experience with rejection, as well!). It's important to learn how to self-critique in the most constructive and appropriate way and learn how to adjust and improve those good paintings and make them award winning paintings! As I begin to jury competitions myself, I will share with you what I look for in a strong watercolor. I look forward to painting with you! Click here to register

UWS SPRING 2018 WORKSHOP

JeanneMcGuire

Jeannie McGuire: May 7-11
An intuitive approach to character development of faces and figures
9 am-4 pm each day.

Jeannie McGuire, AWS, a Pittsburgh-based artist, strives to invoke individual interpretation through her artwork, which impressively utilizes a free application of paint and stylistic forms of expression.  McGuire uses her own photography, acquired snapshots and life drawings to spark her creativity.  Her work has been described as a brilliant combination of emotion, movement, natural design, and sheer artistry that has been expanded upon from her days as a commercial graphic designer and photographer.  Impressionistic in nature with an identifiable subject, her strong, figurative approaches are unique in more ways than one.  

"People love telling me how they feel about my art and I am grateful for the connection we have."
