Watercolor Workshop Day 5

Demo and Critique in Owls Head, Maine
Lighthouse Park and David's Summer Home
September 14, 2015

Gathering at the beach below Owls Head Light
for David Dewey's demo.

On on overcast morning...

"The rock needs to be framed just a little more.
The sky's okay."

David does a forty-five minute demo.

Our lunchtime critique at David's summer home and studio.

Painting is silent poetry,
and poetry is painting that speaks. -Plutarch

And David's words, hands and paints do it all.

"Óskar, this is your best color painting of the week.
It's delicious. You have a whole lot of freeness with your brush.
I love these two beautiful colors, your drawing really important and
necessary. Wonderful Diebenkornesque open space going on." -David Dewey
