Watercolor Workshop at Brighton

Now this is what I call a workshop! I was invited by a fine group of Salt Lake area artists to present a special watercolor class at one of the members homes in the Brighton resort area. The lovely big log lodge owned by Bill and Heidi Vriens was not only our classroom but our lodging while we were there. Set on the mountainside near Brighton and Solitude ski resorts, the setting was breathtaking, surrounded by beautiful aspens, pines, and Spruces providing an unbelievable backdrop for our time together. Our workshop delved into the techniques of portraying water and a field trip to the nearby Silver Lake as the sun went down proved to be a perfect way to study the reflections. Workshop participants included Margo Cook, Virginia Pearce, Heidi Vriens, Laurel Finlinson, Antje Evans, Christena Gates, Joan Reynolds, Dixie Stoddard, Jan Zwick, and Debbie Hogan.
