artist demonstrated watercolor painting at
Art on Saturday, April 26,
2008 at both Sacramento locations. Below are the paintings:
Watercolor Number 1172, "Bodacious Bodega ll", I started off
the day with this one, I did not finish, I got in a hole and put it aside.
later I worked on values and shapes and toned down the Cheap Joe turquoise!
The second demo, numbered 1170, was an interpretation of a familiar subject,
"Fulton Avenue Car Lot". I could still work on this, but I signed
it on the spot. All the works are 22"x15".
I could not resist painting this Sacramento landmark, "Country Club
Lanes". I hung out here in the early 60s. No, that is not me! I had
an Olds. This Winsor Yellow sky work is numbered 1167. Thank you Bob and
crew at the Marconi Avenue Store for your invite. I think it was a hit.
A crowd of interested artists seemed to enjoy seeing my direct painting
methods and the work didn't come out to bad. Thanks everyone for coming,
I was honored by your presence!
Watercolor Number 1169 is the first work at the J Street store. One watcher
this afternoon really wanted me to show her a landscape. I didn't have
a landscape in me. Out instead came this rendition of a "Suburban
Jack in the Box". Thank you to the staff at Sacramento 1 for your
kindness on Saturday. By the time I set up I was exhausted and in deep
pain and your helped me feel welcome at ease.
She wanted a landescape, "I'll come back", so I made a little
value plan from my head and painted this, the 5th and final demo painting,
Number 1171, of the day. She never came back. Thank you again, UArt for
