I just got back from a lovely evening with an artist group that I had not met before! The Juan de Fuca Arts and Crafts Guild Painters meet once a month to paint together and try new techniques with visiting artists. They were a really fun bunch of people, and I really enjoyed the chance to share an evening of art-making with them.
I had met Lesley, who books their visiting artists, at the Monterey Centre artisan’s fair that I did back in November, and we had a lovely chat there. She got in touch with me and invited me to show the group a technique that I have written about before on this blog, Watercolour Monotypes; you can read about how to do them here and see a couple of my faves here. It was really nice to have a reason to do some of these unusual prints again, as I haven’t been doing a lot of them lately.
I took some pictures of the wonderful work people were doing, as well as my own setup — I wanted to show off what a great job everyone did!
Many thanks to the painters for inviting me to be part of such a wonderful, friendly, creative evening — and thanks for the tea and cookies!
