Watercolor Journaling Workshop at Rehoboth Art League

My reference books for Watercolor Journaling

All last week I taught a workshop at Rehoboth Art League. I published pages from my own journal pages done while I was staying in one of the rooms set aside for "Artists in Residence" and very much enjoyed being able to stay on-site while I was teaching. It allowed me to spend some quiet time by myself and to focus on some of the lovely details of RAL's "Homestead" and do journaling of my own, which I don't normally have a chance to do when I'm teaching. (I'm having some difficulties posting to my blog these days and so the photos aren't exactly in the right order, day by day, but you get the idea. They've changed something in the way things are published and I haven't figured it out yet, so please bear with me if things seem a bit jumbled. sorry!)
