Last Time For Me — Watercolor Sketching in the Black Hills

Dear Folks: I wanted to let you know that this will be the last time I will be teaching Watercolor Sketching in the Black Hills. So, if you have been wanting to take the class and putting it off, this would be the year to do it! It would be great to spend a week with you before my final final retirement from teaching.

my best — mark

Final Announcements for the 2011 Black Hills Sketching Class

 

Dear Students — Well, a few short days and we will once again be
paintings in the beautiful Black Hills. We have about a dozen students
signed up for the class — some old timers, some brand new.

Most of the students are staying at the Black Hills Mile Hi Motel in
Custer, 244 Mount Rushmore Road, 605-673-4048. We are meeting there at
1:00pm on Monday to carpool to Legion Lake for our orientation session.
Joan says they have some space in their rooms for two people to a bed if
anyone wants to share (I am assuming this applies to female students,
unless you are a really cute guy, in which case send a recent photo).

We may run into some cool, rainy weather on a day or two so bring
appropriate clothes — I will explore some alternative painting sites if
necessary.

There is still room in the class for a few more students, so if you have any friends who like to join us bring them along.

I am looking forward to a great week — see you soon — mark

Ink painting demonstration using the age-old techniques of hand-ground
ink, rice paper, and fine handmade brushes. The second will be quick
sketching on the ipad — the very new technique and technology of image
making adapted to plein air work.
