Reviving the Strathmore Class--Free!

Hi all...years ago (2012! Time flies!), Strathmore Papers asked me if I'd be one of the artists in their series of free workshops, and of course I agreed!  Watercolor Sketching is one of my favorite things.

There's little enough I can do to help those who are housebound, self-isolating, social distancing or quarantined, I think now is a good time to make the class easily available again, so for the next few days I'm going to link to one of the 4 lessons...

My beloved old Prang paintbox, with my own colors added...

They're all on my YouTube channel, of course, and you may have seen them already, but this may make them easier to find!  Who's got time for all the searching?  (Oh, wait, maybe we do, just now!)

The first lesson is HERE. And I hope you enjoy's on Getting Started.

I have no idea where the original art is on my computer, the search function didn't help, so I'll include a few pertinent images that you may find helpful!

These are the colors I most often use, though seldom have sap green in my kit any more...

I love making up my own paintboxes!  It can be really simple--as you can see, this is pretty much the primaries plus Burnt Sienna and Indigo...and you can make literally dozens of mixtures.
Have fun, all!

And don't forget, I have a LOT of free how-to videos on my YouTube channel...there will be more available in the coming weeks.
