Sonoma, California Watercolor Retreat...Bring the Artist to You!

I just got back from a delightful stay at the Feather Fall Retreat teaching a workshop for a talented group of ladies.  A year ago they hired me to come teach watercolor and see Sonoma for a week.  Generally they travel to take a workshop, but this time they decided to bring the artist to themselves.  This is something I contract occasionally for a specialized education workshop.

Some photo highlights from the trip...

--The welcoming day, as a feather floated from the sky

--Gift baskets for each of us at the first meal

--Picking fresh fruit and vegetables for delicious meals prepared by Barbara & Dean


--Wonderful scenery...overlooking hills, valleys, olive groves, vineyards, gardens, flowers...

--Delightful teaching & learning moments (Composition, Color Application, Glaze, En Plein Air, Pen & Ink w/watercolor)


--Wonderful painting outcomes!

--Laughter & fun getting to know one another

--Early morning & late evening walks

--En plein air drawing

--Olive oil tasting

Overall, a wonderful experience!

Think about bringing the art instructor to you!  Call for more info, these generally need to be booked at least 6 months--a year in advance.
