David Smith + Online Workshop = Fun!

I took a 4 day online watercolor workshop from David Smith this week.  It was great.  I learned a lot and had fun while I was learning.  David is very generous, talented and funny.  The workshop was Monday through Thursday 7:00 a.m. - 2:00 p. m.  (Pacific Time) with 45 minutes for lunch.  We painted a New York City scene, 2 florals and a misty woods scene with our choice of wildlife. 

David's studio is in Eden Prairie, MN.  So cool - he has a mama wild turkey hanging around his house with her 12 babies and deer wander around his house, too.  Next week, I'll post some things I learned.  He has workshops coming up and he'll be doing a free demo in July.  When I have all of the information on the demo, I'll post it in case any of you would like to check him out. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Wow, Candy! I absolutely love your misty workshop paintings! Looks like what I see in my neck of the woods - only your views are more magical!

Bonjour chère amie,

Je suis heureuse de lire que vous avez assisté avec un immense bonheur à des cours d'aquarelle.
Cela m'a amusé aussi de lire vos mots concernant les animaux qui entourent et partagent la vie de cet artiste.
Toutes mes félicitations pour tes magnifiques oeuvres.
Gros bisous... je te souhaite un bel été.

Bonjour Martine!
Je vous remercie pour votre aimable commentaire. Je pense que j'apprends beaucoup. Je suis content que vous ayez trouvé les animaux amusants. Je l'ai fait aussi. L'artiste vit certainement dans un lieu magique. Il a de la chance d'avoir ces créatures tout autour.

J'espère que vous avez aussi un merveilleux été!

Gros bisous
