In this workshop, participants will learn that watercolor is the perfect medium for use in painting birds. Ann will demonstrate its ability to capture their distinctive colors, their beauty and their personality and illustrate how to work from life and from photographs. Sketching techniques suggestions will be shown as well as the use of colored pencils and black ink for detail work. At the end of the workshop participants will have numerous new techniques to use in their future paintings.

"Art is my life. It is what gets me up in the morning and what I think about before I go to bed. I could spend all my days painting and creating. Our beautiful countryside in Mendocino County constantly inspires me. As I stop and look around me, I think: Can I capture that sunlit glow, or paint a tree with those dramatic long shadows? Can I express with paint the softness of the fog that rests in the valleys below our home each morning?" - Ann Maglinte's Website
