Watercolor Journaling Workshop in Arden, DE

Orchid's at the entrance to Lillian and Atul's home

I taught a Watercolor Journaling Workshop on Saturday at the lovely Arden, Delaware home and garden of Atul and Lillian Shah. It was a beautiful day in a absolutely beautiful setting and I think everyone enjoyed themselves and learned a few things. Coffee flowed freely throughout the day that began with a drawing lesson followed by a bit of color theory, color studies, a demonstration and then trying it out on their own.

Lillian's daughter Melora crafted a most scrumptious Gourmet Lunch, assisted by her sister Julie, that included wine, beverages and dessert, and we enjoyed relaxing and taking a break out on their spacious patio, listening to the sound of songbirds and happy people. I'm very grateful to the entire Shah family for opening their art-filled home to my workshop and making us all feel so welcome.

Here's a little peak at our day:
