Watercolor Workshop

This weekend I will have the great joy of attending a watercolor workshop with a fabulous artist, Paul Jackson. My main passion seems to be painting crystal and glass and Paul is a master with the glass and reflections. Was able to go through his book and check out his earlier glass paintings and loved them. His lights and shadows are wonderful and I am going to turn into a giant sponge and soak up everything he throws out. The workshop is being held in our little Noonday community so he will get a dose of East Texas country while he is in our Tyler area. We have some ladies coming down from Dallas and Louisiana and it is a marvelous opportunity to learn when these really accomplished artists do workshops right in your own back yard! Will post my results (if they're good enough) early in the week.


  1. Mollie, I can't wait to see your results. I'm envious, of course but will control my jealousies for I know you will graciously share your "learnings"! I'm so excited for you!

  2. Hi Mary...we're having such a good workshop. Paul has brought several of his big originals and they are just fabulous. Wish I had some money!!! His layering technique is wonderful, and his explanations are what teaching should all be about. Love it when I understand what my teacher is trying to convey. I won't promise that I'll post my results, but we'll see how things turn out. Ha!
