Judy Mizell's Poured Watercolors Workshop

Thanks to all 11 who showed up for the watercolor workshop with Judy Mizell. We met in the downstairs classroom of the McDowell Arts Center where there was plenty of room and light.

The majority of the participants were watercolorists looking for new ways to enhance their works. One of the artists, who  works primarily in pastels, used the technique to create an underpainting. Judy Mizell did not disappoint. She helped everyone with their individual works by suggesting colors and advised in the pouring process to allow for the entry of light or in making the subject stand out. Each pouring was as unique as the person who created it. Hopefully, we will see some of the finished works at one of MAG's exhibits at the MAC.

Judy starts off the workshop with pouring the staining pigments on wet paper.

Large tubs of water were provided for the initial wetting of the paper.

Judy went to each artist to help with the manipulation of the colors.
