The day started foggy, and many students from all over the Bay Area came up to Gay's lovely mountain home. Brook, Gay's husband, brought a caravan of students up the winding Longridge Road from the Summit Store in his yellow `57 Chevy.

A simple quick contour drawing for 30 seconds can create a lovely piece of art!
Watercolor by Marjorie Thomson

The fountain in the garden is wonderful to draw because it's sound of dripping water relaxes the viewer into quiet submission. Watercolor by David Lazarony.


Playing with what you see, and what you imagine is a wonderful expression in a watercolor journal. You don't have to draw just what you see, you can add, subtract any parts you wish! You are the artist! You have artistic license!
Also, just playing with what you can do with washes and color choice with watercolor can be half (or more!) of the fun! Watercolor by Carolyn Glauz-Todrank.

This quick contour drawing gives the stationary object some real life! Watercolor by Barbara Lazarony.

Drawing about memories helps you remember what is important to you.
Watercolor by Dannie Daniels.

Drawing the layout of your the first house will probably bring up memories of your youth -- where you played, the texture of the carpet, etc. Drawing by Nancy Fuja.

Drawing and coloring the objects you see around you will always help to remind you of that moment. A few words help, too!

This beautiful page is about to be added to a watercolor journal. Watercolor by Liz Stroh-Coughlin.

Learning how to add more depth of color to an image can sometimes be a struggle, but just by looking at where darkness and shadows exist, you can find the places where the layers of watercolor can be added. Also, use of fun rubber stamps adds a lot to the feel of the page!

Watercolor by Norma Lydon

Drawing local flora and fauna is a great way to start to see more! Watercolor by Janet Locey.
