The San Francisco Bay Area Urban Sketchers will once again be offering the popular 10X10 series of 10 on-location workshops with 10 teachers and 10 different topics! I’m excited to be offering a new workshop in the series again this year.

Watercolor Painting Tips for the Urban Sketcher 


Learn watercolor techniques to make your sketches come alive in minutes! In this workshop solutions will be explored for everything from palette selection and managing your watercolors on location to getting vibrant color, rich shadows and more. Structured practice in this lovely garden setting will include other aspects of quick-capture watercolor painting such as drawing with a brush, edge blending and splatter technique.

Date: May 11

Time: 10am-1pm

Location: Cornerstone Gardens, Sonoma, CA

Cost: $55

Last year these workshops sold out pretty quickly because people took the opportunity to sign up for more than one. Here’s the list of workshops and teachers you might want to consider, and you can see the whole flyer here.

  1. HI Susan,

    It was nice finally meeting you at the Portrait workshop at SCA. Just to let you know, I signed up for the “Watercolor painting tips for the urban sketcher” in May a few minutes ago. There were only 6 spots left before I signed up. Don’t know how many people you usually take, but glad I signed up early.

    Looking forward to the class and maybe coming down to your place or mine sometime on our local Vine Hill Road to show you where I am with art…as a self-taught newby in the last few years.😎 At some point I will be taking your class, but want to really understand the watercolor medium more before moving into mixed media.

    So glad Mary Black encouraged me to contact you and thank you so much for your enthusiastic blog!
