Wednesday, June 6, 2007 - GCWS Meeting

The Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society meeting was this morning. We had a short business meeting and then an art sale. People brought in their slightly used brushes, paints, and art books for sale to other members. Everything was very reasonably priced (meaning garage sale cheap) and I got a set of pastel pencils and 12 sheets of Fabriano Artistico hotpress for $10 total! Plus I sold everything I took to sell.

The Evergreen Show ended Sunday and we only sold 8 paintings - a disappointing number since the show ran for 4 full weeks, including Mother's Day weekend and Memorial Day weekend. Oh, well...

After the sale, Sandy Maudlin gave a demo/lesson on her taping technique in watercolor.
She won the Ohio Watercolor Society Gold Award this past year with a taped painting (painting at left) and she enjoys working this way but all that taping on masking tape in small bits here and there just is soooo time consuming that I don't have the patience for it.
Today's outcome (with 16 participants - a good turnout) was this painting (see below).
