 Rose #2 13113 (private Collection)

 Janet Rogers teaching florals
Check out her traveling painting "easel". It's three panels of foam core scored and taped that can be folded flat for traveling. That is a piece of rubberized kitchen shelf liner to drape over it so her board doesn't slip. The boards she likes are from Cheap Joe's Artmate watercolor boards for support. HERE..  
Here is her supply list for the colors she uses.  And Thank You, Cheap Joe's for all the goodies and letting us try out some of her fabulous watercolors in colors new to us.

 Small Rose #13109
7.5x5.5 watercolor, 140 lb paper

 White Flowers 13111
13x11 Watercolor, 140 lb 
I'm calling these white flowers because no one knew the name. Sad I know and someone thought it started with a "G" but just let these be a generic white flower for now. 

Stock Study or Hollyhocks.. you choose... 13114
12x16 Watercolor on 140 lb paper
These were to be a painting of some purple stock and I do think they make good hollyhocks. 

Before I launch into the workshop, remember the sale ($3.00 off) on all my products at Check Advantage HERE for this week only:
 Starts Monday Oct 28 and here is the link again
with checks, check covers, address labels (don't click the start shopping link) A really nice feature is "duplicates" if you like to have a little help in remembering where that check was written. When ordering select duplicates and you will always know the date and where that check was written.

Watercolor Workshop with Janet Rogers: 
I decided I needed a Janet Rogers refresher course after taking her 3 day in Fort Worth in September 2008 and I loved every minute of the 4 day Dallas workshop (October 21-24) painting "Flowers and Portrait/Figures in Watercolor".  Today I'll post the flowers and save the figures for another day. I'm not painting 1/2 or full sheets in watercolor at present but I'm enjoying using my journal with watercolor and I do enjoy the eight sheets. I've also finished illustrating a book of poems in watercolor, Dreams of the Turtle King.
When the 15 students arrived on Monday, the Artist Showplace was filled with fresh flowers and we each had a table to ourselves  and that always makes a great start to any workshop. We worked on single flowers and flowers in a bouquet for the first two days and the rest on faces and figures. Janet gives great demos and helps each student and each day we have a critique on work done and she's one of those rare instructors who "walk the room" after he demo making sure each one understands and she helps out with questions and more personal demos. She is also a happy, loving artist. 

Remember if you don't have time to take a workshop away from home, Daily Paintworks has ArtBytes to download, some are free and some are very affordable. I have a $10 ArtByte available on Collage. Check out all of them HERE.  And thanks to all who have already purchased my tutorial.
