ART JOURNAL NOTES FROM WATER COLOR WORKSHOP WITH CONNIE FURGASON

ART JOURNAL NOTES – One of the things I love to do is to take spontaneous illustrated notes during art workshops I attend.  Sometimes I am asked how I can do this so fast and my answer is I don’t worry about making mistakes.  I move quickly wanted to capture things the teacher is saying that seem powerful to me.  I create tiny thumbnail sketches that illustrate the principals the teacher is demonstrating for us.  My class notes are illustrated because I am a visual person.  When we are sent back to work on our paintings, I very quickly put washes onto my notes.  Voila’ a lovely resource guide to help me to actually implement what I’ve been taught. 

This workshop was taught by Calligrapher & Artist, Connie Furgason and the pumpkin and pear demo pages were inspired by her two samples.

SAN DIEGO FELLOW CALLIGRAPHERS – WATERCOLOR WORKSHOP

SAN DIEGO FELLOW CALLIGRAPHERS – WATERCOLOR WORKSHOP WITH CALLIGRAPHER & ARTIST, CONNIE FURGASON was quite wonderful.  I took pages & pages of illustrated art journal notes and created 10 watercolor paintings during the two-day workshop!  Fellowship with other artists is so important to me.  It puts a bounce in my step to know that I’m in a community that supports art!

“AUTUMN BLESSINGS ON THE WIND”

“AUTUMN BLESSINGS ON THE WIND” – Nature sighs as summer ends & winter is on it’s way.  Gusts of wind shake loose all the colorful leaves from surrounding trees to reveal their handsome winter silhouettes.  Stark winter beauty is on the way.
