Thanks to Michael Holter we all learned about a “Swashbuckler Wash” at our March 3rd demo. He painted a boat silhouetted against a sunrise wash. Using a large brush he mixed up a stew of colors, showing us how to shift the colors to the warm or cool spectrum. He finished the painting by scrapping out with a credit card to demonstrate all sorts of tools can be use to create a great painting.
Marcela has been busy once again lining up many plein air activities for us. Michael Holter mentioned that it was a great practice to paint on location to increase speed, observation and considers it vital in the artistic process.
Check our website for further details on the following locations:

All CFWS members are invited to our next board meeting on 3/21 at 10 amat the Casselberry library on Oxford Rd. where we’ll discuss the upcoming season.
WE NEED A PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT to satisfy the requirements of our By-laws and 501 c 3. Otherwise, our society is in danger of having to disband. So far, The board, Mary and I have had no luck in finding someone to step up to either of these positions. If we want this society to continue, we need to find 2 folks who would like to work together. Our next season is set up and information is organized in easy to access files so no one has to “reinvent the wheel”.
Contact Teresa Chin or Mary Dall if you would like to learn more.
