Next meeting will be March 31. The demo artist will be Dennis Rhoades demonstrating pastel. You can view some of his work here.
The Wheat Ridge Art League was very pleased to have an outstanding watercolor demo on Feb 24 by popular Colorado artist and instructor Randy Hale. This was followed by an all day watercolor workshop on March 14.
We were all very inspired by his beautiful intense colors and watching his paints flow across the paper ... "making it look so easy!"
Randy emphasized the importance of knowing your light source, the direction and colors of shadows, positive and negative shapes, using lost and found edges, ... and HAVE FUN painting. We all enjoyed the exercises on painting rocks, fruit, and then an afternoon landscape after his demo of a beautiful barn scene.
All members had great compliments of the great workshop, Randy's amazing artistic talent and his excellent teaching skills. There were requests for another workshop.
Thanks to Shirley Nakamoto for the photos and description.
It has been many years since this website was built, and it is time for a makeover. The entire site will look different, and hopefully be more attractive and functional. We are planning a member bio section where you can show some of your work and tell something about yourself, so the current member gallery will be replaced.
Please be thinking about what you want to say and what pictures you want to display. Contact Alex Hinst with any suggestions you want condsidered.
