Durango Watercolor Workshop - Day One

This was the first day of my last watercolor workshop at my home/studio in Durango.  We will be moving in the spring of 2017, so this one -- my 11th four-day workshop here --  was bittersweet.  

All set up . . . waiting for everyone to arrive.

The project for our first day was the Color Wheel Mandala.

We had a wonderful group of 12 women.  
A few were here for the first time, while others had been coming for 9 or 10 years!

Still smiling . . . always a good sign.

Time for a break!

After lunch, everyone started on the Radial Design/ Negative Painting part of the Color Wheel.

At the end of the day, we all gathered together, to share our Color Wheels and a glass of wine . . .

What a great way to start off the weekend -- looking forward to tomorrow!

  1. It seems like this was very productive workshop for people who were attending it. Many people draw using water color so it must have helped them a lot to learn different water coloring techniques. Pictures are good.
