Camaraderie at its best!
Three artists - One 4 x 7 foot piece of paper

Together, these three artists will create one painting on a 4 x 7 watercolor paper canvas (it would have been eight feet long, but it didn't fit in the van). Come see how they do it!

Cathy (NEWS 2017 Silver Medal winner) works in both watercolor and oil. Her subject matter comes from life and from loose interpretations of photos. Architectural landscapes and organic forms intrigue her. Julie (NEWS Vice-President) primarily works outdoors on the spot. She uses strong color and a variety of techniques to capture the mood and feeling
of the day. Wendy (NEWS President) is an urban planner turned watercolorist. She enjoys painting cityscapes and capturing the emotional character of people and their environment.
