This week I'm proud to announce I have been asked to give another Facebook Live watercolor demonstration sponsored by Dillman's Art Workshop Retreat in Lac du Flambeau, WI.
This was photographed in the Great Northwoods, believe it or not, this waterway in northeastern Vilas County is part of the Mississippi headwaters. I call this area home in my heart and you will too during my FREE watercolor demonstration.
As you may know, my wife, Marilee, and I suffer from wonder lust and enjoy exploring the great Northwoods while we visit our little cabin in the woods. That's one of the many reasons we love Dillman's. They are nestled on a beautiful, pristine lake framed by majestic pines. Checkout Dillman's Resort and enjoy exploring nature's wonders. Life is good.

OF THE GREAT NORTHWOODS
Later on this year I will be giving a 4-FULL day Watercolor Workshop at Dillman's. The dates are Sept 27 (check-in and reception) September 28-October 1.
For beginners and intermediates, my unique step-by-step instruction in transparent watercolor, focusing on large patterns of light and dark using scenes from nature, will allow students to watch, go back and recreate what was just painted. Students will learn how to build a painting from start to finish while gaining a deeper understanding of the techniques, properties, and tools of transparent watercolor. I will cover all four seasons to explore color temperature, intensity, and value. Students will complete seven paintings with a critique on the last day. Photo references will be supplied. Students will leave with new confidence, ability, and understanding.
Last year I wrote a blog about my
amazing Dillman's experience titled
The Disneyland For Passionate Fine Artists
In The Great Northwoods Of Wisconsin.
This is a pretty long post but I walked you through the entire Popovich/Dillman's experience.
