FOUR-DAY WATERCOLOR WORKSHOP
Watercolor Impressions of
the Great Northwoods
I want to tell you it was an honor to teach these four full days at Dillman's. I hope MY students had as much fun as I did. Like I said it was a pleasant learning experience for me to see the various interpretations of my demos. I am always thrilled to help you, the artist truly see.
Dillman's Art Retreat
2021 Workshop Scrapbook
This year's Dillman's watercolor workshop started off with above normal temperatures, blazing autumn colors, and a packed studio. Artist started showing up early Sunday afternoon setting up their equipment for a four full day workshop. I was so pleased to see old friends and new artists. Two ladies stopped me in the parking lot to let me know they enjoy watching my Watercolor Escape Saturdays, YouTube videos and Dillman's Facebook live events.
Dillman's always offers a lovely early evening reception which included Denny Robertson, owner welcoming the instructors and students. From there we enjoyed a buffet dinner of salmon or chicken kiev, wild rice, fresh green beans and a display of tiny desserts. Oh, the owner, Denny kept the wine flowing.
As you may know, I share my personal library of photos I have taken over the years. This workshop was no different. I was so excited about introducing my passion for watercolor impressions of the Great Northwoods to my students.
Take a look at my scrapbook below and see all the fun we had. Everyone painted two paintings a day. I pushed them to get loose and free – I have to say everyone was surprised at
how much they produced.
Dillman's is a great host planning every waking moment of our day. Lunchtime boat rides, box lunches, group dinners in town, gallery walks, snacks in the morning and afternoons, campfires and s'mores, and the most beautiful compound you ever would want to stay at in Wisconsin.
At the end of the workshop, I gave away all of my demos to eight lucky students. To finish off the last day Dillman's had champagne, cupcakes, and handed out certificates of completion.
Well done everyone.
I will be back next year, Sept 25-30, 2022 - four teaching days, and will cover the same subject, Watercolor Impressions
of the Great Northwoods.
My wife Marilee will also be giving an art marketing workshop, Claim Your Online Presence as a Professional Artist on May 17-22, 2022 – four teaching days. I hope you will be able to make it to next year's workshop in God's country.
