March Watercolor Demonstration

CMW members and 2 new members enjoyed Anita Hendrickx’s demonstration Monday, March 10.
She provided resource samples as well as  eco-friendly and efficacy based anecdotes as she painted.  She used watercolors, mat media, dried pressed flowers, and calligraphy to produce a lovely multimedia composition of tulips, reminding us all that Spring will indeed arrive.  Below are photos from this demo.
