THANKS FOR PARTICIPATING IN MY SURVEY! We had 49 replies. For reproducing PBS Season One, how would you like to receive it? 26 people chose DVDs, 18 people chose Downloads, 2 people chose a Zoom type link and 3 people chose thumb drive.
We have DVDs being made and downloads are available now. Dale loads thumb drives by hand and we will have some of those (They take a lot of time to load). Check the website “store”: great gifts for yourself and friends or family who may sketch. The real basics are in Season One.
Also, there are finally workshops scheduled. Check the website again. www.pocketsketching.com The first one (Basic) is in my home studio December 9, 10, 11 here in Tucson. As I can have only 7 people, do let me know if you are interested.
We are moving to teaching teachers. If you know someone in your town who is a good teacher (YOU?), recommend they come to the Teacher’s Workshop. It has everything I know from the minute you walk in the room, plus everything I teach. If you teach at all, you’ll recover your investment.
If you live near Tucson, come to the PaperWorks meeting on the 8th of December. I’m the speaker talking about how this whole Pocket Sketching happened and where it should go. This is an exciting club that meets monthly. Guests are totally welcome. If you do anything with paper (write, fold, paint, manufacture, Pinterest, etc. you will meet kindred spirits. They post the meeting speakers on their excellent website: PaperWorks (I Googled it and it came up) You can see me there after the meeting.
What did I learn from the Tony Couch traditional watercolor workshop I just took? You carry tons of equipment, get paint on yourself, have paint under your fingernails, need a table, but it’s exciting. He demonstrates and lectures most of the 4 days…but there is so much to learn!!!! I have far more respect for the ease and portability of Pocket Sketching and still love watercolor too.
It’s almost Thanksgiving: Have a delightful holiday!
