I hope you got inspired last Saturday at the Palette & Chisel Academy of Fine Arts Demo Days. As you can see there is a huge amount of talent at the P&C waiting to share their skills and mentor students like you.
I truly enjoy sharing my 40+ years of drawing and painting experiences with my students. I am so passionate about watercolor and I enjoy sharing my knowledge and love of the medium. I hope you saw that on Saturday.
Here's the final demonstration. This took a little over an hour. I encourage the viewers to ask questions throughout the process. And I have no problem with people taking photos and videos.
I used QoR Watercolors and 300 lb. indigo watercolor paper. Remember I had mentioned a blog post from last year where I reviewed QoR paints. READ MY POST AND VIEW VIDEO HERE
There was around 45 minutes left. I was asked for a second demo and I was more than happy to share more. Sorry, we didn't capture a photo of the snow scene I did but here's a work in progress.

Earlier this year I participated in the Palette & Chisel's yearly Demo Days in February. This is a great event where most all of the instructors demonstrate their talents in a two-weekend event and it's all for free. During this time the Faculty Show is hanging in the Main Gallery.
Demo Day's give you a first hand opportunity to see the instructors teaching and painting styles. You can ask questions and really understand each artist's philosophies. You can find the my demo on my Facebook page, Observer Artist Watercolorist Dale L Popovich IWS. We broadcasted a Facebook live.
Voyage Chicago saw my demo and included my painting in an article about Chicago Artists. Well, recently they approached me about doing an in depth interview for their artist & creative focused series calledThe Thought Provokers. Here's a link to the interview Voyage Chicago.
