Tip # 119-- Ink & Watercolor Wash is finally up!

I've been swamped with other projects, so just now got the newsletter done for my latest art tip...my terrific webmistress Sonya at http://morgansites.com got the tip itself up last week!  Here's the rough form, and pardon the wonky formatting, I just copied and pasted and all that code came along for the ride!  Of course the tip itself is on my webpage, as always...and if you'd like to subscribe to the newsletter, you'll find a form there, too...http://cathyjohnson.info


ART TIP #119 Ink
& Watercolor Wash


Ink and watercolor are very popular used together, these days...it's fun, it's graphic, and if you love to draw it's the perfect approach!  This tip offers lots of different ways of approaching this happy
combination...try them out for yourself!

You'll find this latest tip on my website as usual; click the "Art Tips" link at upper left, or go directly to http://www.cathyjohnson.info/tips.html

 

One of my most popular CDs, shown above, is on that very subject!  (And as we've noted here before, we decided to produce these ourselves for complete quality control...you'll find them in my website catalog!)

* If you know someone who might be interested in ALL our offerings, feel free to share signup info for this newsletter or forward this email!  The signup form's on my website,
too...address in the sidebar at right.




Remember my "BIG ANNOUNCEMENT NEXT TIME" teaser?  It's HERE:
 
FREE STRATHMORE WORKSHOPS!
I've been asked to do a 4-week workshop as part of  Strathmore's free workshop series, and I was delighted to say yes!  It will focus on watercolor, but we'll also cover mixed media and journaling. I've been writing lessons and shooting and editing videos for weeks now--part of what's delayed this newsletter (and my next mini-class)!
 
There will the three workshops in all, mine will be the one starting March 1, 2012.  I hope you'll join me!

THINKING OF OUR ARTISTIC ANCESTORS
 
Wonder what your studio might have been like in primal times?  I found this article fascinating!
