Next CMW Meeting – Monday, November 9, 2015 at the Paramount – Steph Young will give an update about exciting CMW happenings.  In addition, our featured demonstration artist will be Duane Barnhart.  Here is what he says, The translucent quality of watercolor lets the paper reflect light to create an inner glow that gives the painting more life.  I enjoy both plein air  painting on location and working in my studio on Big Pine Lake south of Aitkin, Minnesota. I try to capture a sense of presence and a fresh look at the subject. I enjoy experimenting with the use of saturated color and strive to take advantage of the translucency of the paints. ”     To see his work click on this site:
