'Tis the season for workshops, whether I'm teaching one, or for the first time in a decade, taking one. I just got back from a long, fabulous weekend with Jane Filer on North Carolina's coast. You will see changes in my art for sure from that experience. Bigger, texture and acrylics.
Here I am giving demo at the Kanuga Watermedia Workshops a few weeks ago (I'll be teaching there next March). The photo was taken my an Internet friend of mine, Donna Zagotta, whom I met for the first time there. Audacious is my middle name. May it be yours too.
See you all at my Blue Ridge Watermedia Workshop, In Waynesville, North Carolina, June 15-18. Call Nancy Belvins at 828 246-0237 for details.
I just checked my friend Myrna's blog and she had a couple of photos of her painting in Spain, so here is how I managed on the streets of Shanghai. I learned to hold all of my stuff and still get a sketch/painting done in 20 minutes. The Chinese people were fascinated, reassuring and friendly.
I am the author of Master Disaster, 5 Ways to Rescue Desperate Watercolors. Based on a course that I have developed over many years, the bones of this book give you a plan to finish your paintings--and even your bombs. The meat of my book and course, though, is to help you structure your life to encourage and accommodate painting. Painters have to paint. This is how to do it.
