PROGRAM David Watson - Felt Pen & Watercolor @7:00pm

David Watson Website

If you haven’t tried the medium of felt pen and watercolor before now, you’re going to enjoy this! This medium has been used throughout the years by illustrators and fine artists alike. It is versatile, forgiving, and a lot of fun. I will bring in some of my own work and discuss my methods and materials. Then we can work on a piece together. The medium can be used to create your own holiday or greeting cards, house portraits, pet portraits, etc. It has endless possibilities.
