We asked participants to share photos of what they created during this year’s Winter Workshop Series led by incredible instructors Meagan Dew, Liz Steel, and Jane Blundell.
Panel Sketches with Meagan Dew
In Meagan’s workshop, participants explored how dividing your page into panels allows you to document many different aspects of a place while also playing with composition. Meagan is a delightful instructor, and we enjoyed seeing what participants created during her workshop. Thank you to Adrienne, Molly, Amanda, and Dee for sharing your panel sketches inspired by Central Park!

How to Sketch Buildings with Liz Steel
Participants in Liz Steel’s Art Toolkit Workshop learned techniques for sketching buildings in an urban setting and from reference images. Liz is a wonderfully thorough teacher, and we enjoyed seeing what participants created during her workshop, including pages of notes!
Thank you to Cecillia, Christine, and Rebecca for sharing glimpses from your notebooks!
Watercolor Triads with Jane Blundell
In Jane Blundell’s workshop, participants explored working with triads (three primary colors) to mix a full color wheel, including tertiary colors, a spectrum of browns, and black. Participants first painted an earth-tone triad with muted primaries and tested the mixes by painting a rock wall.
Then, everyone made an “everyday triad” of vibrant primaries before putting the colors to work and painting a magnolia flower. Jane had information and techniques to share from start to finish, and we enjoyed seeing what participants created during her workshop.
Jane is an outstanding instructor; it was truly a pleasure to have her team up with us. Her knowledge of watercolors is vast and so valuable to students of any level. Whether or not you attended the workshop, we recommend checking out her book, Watercolor Triads.
Thank you to Lane and Logan for sharing your triads and sketches with us, and we’re looking forward to next season’s workshops!
