    MONTHLY PAINT-IN: It's Not Easy Painting Green! 

    Saturday, January  6; 9:30 am-3:30 pm  (set-up 9:00-9:30)

    Contacts:  Jan McNeill (jan.mcneill@att.net) and David Muegge   713-645-8711.

    Carla Gauthier teaches classes and workshops at WASH as well as at private classes in the Clear Lake area.

    Often, tube greens we buy don't look right in our landscapes or florals - they're too bright, too acidic, too sharp - just not natural.  

     In this month's paint-in, Carla will examine many of the tube greens out there, as well as the mixtures we can attain using blue and yellow.   She will cover good ways to tweak tube colors and recipes for believable greens that give your paintings depth and sparkle.

    Bring your regular supplies (including your tube greens) and a few 1/4 sheets of your favorite paper.   We will make a recipe card for great greens and do a small quick painting to reinforce where to place each color to create a sense of space.

    MONTHLY PAINT-IN: Sketchbooks 

    Saturday, February 10; 9:30 am-3:30 pm  (set-up 9:00-9:30)

    Contacts:  Jan McNeill (jan.mcneill@att.net) and David Muegge   713-645-8711.

    Caroline Graham teaches watercolor at both WASH and the Art League of Houston.   She will discuss the properties and sizes of sketchbooks and various kinds of sketching materials.  Bring your favorite sketchbook to share with the group – its paintability or sketchability.

    The day will cover:    how to use a sketchbook on location, taking your sketchbook to local museums,  trying out new ideas, and seeing how famous artists used their sketchbooks.   Caroline will assign several exercises to develop new ways to create and design using scale, words, collage, and frames of reference.

    Supplies: your sketchbooks, normal paints, notebook for notes.
