Charles Reid Workshop in England

For those who are fans of Charles Reid I have just attended a workshop at Stow in the Wold, which is a small town in the Cotswolds, a scenic part of England.


A very full description of the workshop together with many photographs is on my blog www.watercolourfanatic.blogspot.com/ on a day by day basis.

If you are interested please visit.

Peter

Re: Charles Reid Workshop in England

Thank you Peter and I empathise with the selling/buying house predicament as it is exactly where I am right now.

Re: Charles Reid Workshop in England

My husband has been encouraging me to take one of the workshops soposored byCheap Joes...it is within driving distance for us....but, I keep looking for an artist whose style I really admire and would like to emulate, not copy buy take the style and make it mine. But, the style of painting Imwant to learn is the extreme wet in wet of Jean Louis Morrell and Ewa Karpenska. I have even thought of seeing if I could attend a workshop in Europe taught by Ewa Karpenska or Morrell.....
Should I either wait till I can find someone in the USA that Does this style or travel to Europe ( We wouldnt be going to Europe just to do the workshop, we would be vacationing too) or would it be worthwile to take workshops from other artists and learn what I could? I am interested in learning but have to consider the expenses...

Re: Charles Reid Workshop in England

Thanks for all the kind words. I set out to present things in a way that would be helpful for Charles Reid fans, both present and would be, and for those who, for a variety of reasons, cannot get on his workshops.

I have just posted Day Five which was the fascinating portrait session.

Peter

Re: Charles Reid Workshop in England

Peter,
Your blog is most interesting and shows us the experience you had in the workshop.

Can you show us some of the work you did in the workshop here in this thread so we see what you will be talking about in the blog?

We liked to see things here, not just links to other places.

Sylvia

Re: Charles Reid Workshop in England

I'd love to take a watercolor workshop, and have searched for years to do that, including in Cheap Joes, as we have family in Charlotte! hummmmm'
