It will truly be a special evening, all merchants will be open until 8pm with the Tree lighting ceremony beginning at 6:30pm.
I have to say I was so impressed with one of my students Debbie Abshear at my Calistoga workshop this month. Debbie does a lot of Plein Air Painting and is always doing value sketches where ever she goes, either in her note book or as you can see here, in an accordion sketch book which she make herself. I loved what she was doing and want to share her talent with you, basically she does quick studies to help her find her values then places the local color along side with a few notes. Love the affect and her work.

Debbie can make these sketch books any size that she likes
I am happy to announce that I have a new instructional program called The Star Flower available as an online rental or purchase as a download. DVD to be available for the Holiday Season

This program was filmed live in an actual workshop, now you can almost feel as if you were there. We will be working on a half sheet of 300 lb CP watercolor paper then starting with a simple exercise I will walk you through the painting process from beginning to end, every step of the way.
