There were so many wonderful entries from UWS! We wish for everyone to see them! Cheng-Khee Chee complimented us on how many fine paintings there were and said that he had a hard time limiting his choices to 110. There were over 1100 entries!
We have already been cleared to gather at Dancing Cranes Imports just off of 7th East at Simpson Avenue. We're meeting on February 21, Friday, at 3:00pm. The Soltice Cafe is contained within where we'll meet for refreshments, Dutch Treat, and Show and Tell after. Be there or be square.
Post Trolley Square Paintout
It turned out great, despite Sundance tickets being passed out and creating long lines. The best part about that was we had models that stood still long enough to be 'captured'.
Maura continues to bring new people.( Welcome to Paul and Leslie Williams and Rebecca Fore) In all we had 13 painters plus extras for lunch at the Edge of the Desert Pub. A great time was had at the show and tell, my favorite activity since grade school.
For more than 20 years Suzanna Winton has captured the essence of the human soul through her watercolor portraits. She is the recipient of over 30 regional and national awards and has been featured in many national and international publications. These publications include Splash 6, The Artist's Magazine, American Artist, Watercolor Magic, Watercolor Basics, Watercolor Artist's and Pratique De Arts (A French Watercolor Magazine). The staff of The Artist's Magazine lists her as "An artist on the rise and one of 20 artists who we believe are destined to be master painters of the future" (01/04)
Her workshops span the United States and she is a frequent teacher at the Cheap Joes workshops in North Carolina. Check out her website to see a sample of her work. This workshop will give us the opportunity to gain experience with painting the nature of people. She starts with the foundation of getting the skin tones correct and will progress through the class with examples that we will emulate as well as having the opportunity to work from our own reference materials.
