April 13, OUR NEXT MEETING
Jeannie Vodden

I’m planning to show your members how I approach painting lace, crochet and other intricacies.  While I won’t finish a full painting, I will share plenty of information on how to paint texture and detail.  My approach, as you may remember, is to use a very limited palette of staining transparent color.  I use layers of pure color to build my values and create my neutral hues (rather than mixing on the palette, or using neutral tube colors such as Burnt Sienna).    Using this method I can create the illusion of cut glass, crochet, lace, silver or tangled and twisted hair, etc … without using masking fluid.  Lots of fun, lots of observation and attention to detail.  Hope WASCO members will enjoy watching.

    I would like to meet another artist here in Sonoma. I am currently painting again with watercolors and loving it and yet there is of course so much to learn everyday. You Tube has been and is an excellent source of ‘learning’…..I haven’t got a car so am unable to attend any meeting in Santa Rosa. I live very close to the Library in town of Sonoma – on Oregon Street. To have a chat….once and awhile with someone who is an advanced watercolorist (I am not nor am I a beginner) would be so nice !
