Come visit me in western South Dakota to be inspired by the breathtakingly beautiful Black Hills. My artwork will displayed in Sylvan Lake Lodge's gallery where you may find me painting in their historic Great Room. If not, I will be hiking and sketching along the trails of Custer State Park.
FYI, I will be at Sylvan Lake Lodge during the Annual Buffalo Round-Up. This is an exciting event you don't want to miss!
Classes and Workshops
This engaging class will take the fear out of drawing and painting as we create personal art journals. Participants will explore contour and gestural drawing and the fundamentals of watercolor painting. All techniques will be demonstrated with individual attention given to each student. This fun, hands-on class provides the artistic tools you need to explore your creative side with confidence.
Dive into the beautiful, flowing medium of watercolor as we create a rural landscape. Judy will help you develop a working knowledge of watercolor fundamentals as we explore the elements to a successful composition. Understand how to build color depth through washes and glazing, color mixing and how different papers, pigments and brushes will produce different results. We will also explore the use of wax, tape and masking fluid to create beautiful textures and layers of color within our landscape paintings. All techniques will be demonstrated, with individual guided instruction.
Level: Advanced beginner/Intermediate: Students should have some experience painting with watercolor.
