I have a small but enthusiastic group here in beautiful Gualala, California.  The Advanced Watercolor Portrait workshop is at the Gualala Art Center.  I will take some photos of the grounds and building and post later in the week.  It is a stunning venue.  Day one deals with the opportunity to explore various color ideas.  I have everyone work on a half sheet divided into 5 x 7 segments.  As you can see by the slide show, everyone really had fun with this concept.  I wish my photography was as good as their efforts!  I must do a better job of photographing tomorrow.

At the end of the day, my husband and I sipped wine, sitting in comfy chairs outside watching the sun setting into the Pacific Ocean.  A perfect ending to a wonderful day.

LOL, you get around! A couple years ago my husband and I were driving in California (we're from WI), and stopped for lunch in Gualala - ended up staying two days.

Hi Dee, I look forward to having you in a workshop again. All the work on the slide show was from photos.

Hi Sherry, great Gualala story. Seems like the place is a well kept secret!

Cynnie, happy you liked the slide show. I like to show off my students. They are amazing.
