Eric Wiegardt, the award winning watercolorist from Washington, just taught a 5-day workshop on being bold and loose with watercolor! The weather was beautiful and there were plenty of Spring flowers putting on a show all around the inn.

Eric did at least one demo each day. Here he is doing a painting of the white flowering viburnum in the white garden on our side lawn.

On another day, Eric painted a scene of the side view of the carriage house. These photos were taken by Kathy Kernan, a student in the class. (Thanks, Kathy!)

The group also went to our favorite local farm to paint. This is Eric’s demo painting from that day.

Everyone enjoyed Eric’s easy going style and great sense of humor. It’s easy to see why he is a popular teacher. Eric will be back with us again in 2016!
