For the past few years I have been focused on my workshops so it was a real treat to take a workshop with another artist. Dale Laitinen is a California artist who works mostly in watercolour. I love his paintings.
His approach uses large sheets of watercolour paper and big, flat brushes. Since this is quite different from my style I was very pleased to add some of his ideas to my own painting.
Here are the 2 paintings I did. Both are my version of his demos. The are both half sheets. I’m very pleased with these paintings and with what I learned in the workshop. He was brought here by the Calgary Chapter of the Federation Of Canadian Artists.
