Our Next Meeting, September 14
Demo by Leslie Rich
For the past two years I’ve been doing a “sketch-of-day.” The sketches actually have turned out to be small watercolors done directly from life, drawn in ink, then watercolor added. It’s been invigorating challenging and rewarding. There is a page on my website dedicated to the “sketches”. I’ve turned 12 of the sketches into a calendar. I’m now posting my daily sketches on instagram (Instagram – @lrichcolors) and on Facebook (Leslie Rich).
Bring your sketchbook, pen/pencil, small portable stool, waterbrush, and small watercolor palettes or watercolor pencils to this meeting.
Monthly programs consists of demonstrations and lectures by well known and respected watercolor artists. See our 2016 meeting calendar at http://wascoart.org/wasco-events/
