Dear Artist,
Watercolor Pencils on Location

Hey, with all the crazy weather all over the USA, I'm heading to my Artist Retreat Workshop in sunny Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - January 23-30 (yes, in a couple of weeks!)

We have rooms and a studio workshop for seven days. The workshop is "Abstract Painting & Collage". So, if you would like to give yourself a real treat to start the New Year, reserve your spot NOW. Go to ArtWorkshopVacations 
Space is limited, with only a few spots left.

Casa de los Artistas - A painter's vacation, great accommodations, personal service, ten miles south of Puerto Vallarta in a quaint fishing village. Just imagine, waking up to the aroma of mesquite and charcoal, roosters crowing and the sound of ocean waves. We work on our own on the top floor of the Casa - an open floor studio, with amazing views - painting all day.

I'm bringing my acrylic paints, water soluble pencils and plenty of paper. Water soluble pencils are excellent to travel with - whether you are painting on location or in the studio. This week's video demonstrates how I use these pencils: Derwent InkTense, Derwent Intense Blocks and Faber-Castell. With these minimal materials, I am able to work quickly and have the look and feel of paint. 

Hope to see you at the Casa! 

Go to My website for more stuff that I do!
