8th Annual Signature American Watercolor Exhibit

I'm overjoyed to have a painting juried into the 8th Annual Signature American Watercolor Exhibit! This prestigious juried show is only open to artists who have earned Signature Membership in at least one national watercolor society. I have earned eight Signature Memberships, so far, and each one was a tremendous honor to achieve. This exhibits highlights the very best watercolor artists in America, and I'm incredibly proud to be included.

Watercolor Painting Workshop in Maryland!

(Edited: This workshop for BWS sold out and the wait list filled up within two hours after registration opened. This happens to most of my workshops -- I can't stress enough how crucial it is to register right away, or you'll miss your chance!) 

My upcoming workshop in New Jersey sold out right away, but never fear! I've just added a workshop in Maryland hosted by the Baltimore Watercolor Society! This one will also sell out fast, so hurry and sign up now to reserve your space! 

Contact the Baltimore Watercolor Society to reserve your space in this workshop. BWS members $60, non-members $65. Saturday, March 25 at the Howard County Center for the Arts, Ellicott City, Maryland.  

"Annie guides students through the painting process with helpful step-by-step demonstrations and individual attention. All artists, whether they are new to watercolors or experienced painters, will learn new skills from watching Annie as she explains her techniques for creating spectacular paintings. Multiple watercolor techniques are covered in the workshop, including glazing, washes, dry brush, masking, lifting, & more. Students will gain an understanding of the properties of different paints, learn how to successfully mix colors, and how to use values and color temperatures to enhance their compositions.  Students will watch and learn as each technique is explained and demonstrated with a clarity that makes the lessons easy to absorb and replicate. Students will benefit from personal and group critiques, and receive individual attention from the instructor."
