I'm off to a workshop

My spouse and I will be passing in the night.  He's returning from a weekend away and I'm leaving for a week away studying with an artist I've admired for a very long time, Charles Reid.  The second book I bought on watercolor painting years ago was Painting What You Want To See by Reid.  I love how loose he works.  I don't want my paintings to look like Charles Reid paintings but I know I'll be able to learn something from him.  I'll post something from the workshop when I get back.

Oh lucky fish! That was the very first watercolour book I bought and made me decide I really love the medium. Enjoy it Helen, and look forward to hearing about it.

Have a wonderful time at the Charles Reid workshop!!! I've enjoyed catching up on what I missed this past month on your blog. France was great!
