Painting Watercolors of Autumn

We celebrated the colors of the autumn season this October with John Adams, NW Watercolorist, at the North Cascades Basecamp.  A full house of artists partook in a weekend workshop learning techniques for composition, texture and value, color mixing, and putting those vibrant golds, oranges, reds, and yellows into action in a fall landscape.  Johns demonstrations were invaluable in the painting and crafting process.  The diversity in the group from age to skill level came together as an enjoyable weekend for all.

Capturing the Shades of October

A Photography Workshop with Teri J Pieper

Several of us joined Teri for a day of exploration with nature photography and fall colors.  Teri helped us play with the colors and textures of the natural world coming to life.  Textures of ice, colors of leaves, movement of the river, and reflections of the water kept us alive and excited to take the next step and the next photograph.  Click here to see her blog about the workshop and more photos.
