Note from Linda: I am arriving a day
early and staying in Toulouse to get my
jet lag under control. I will fly on the 22nd
from California and arrive in Toulouse on
the 23rd. I will have dinner in Toulouse
then early to bed. I will do a
walking/sketching tour of Toulouse on the
24th and go back to the airport on the 25th
to meet the group. Let me know if you
want to come in early as well. I have
heard the Albert Hotel in Toulouse is in a
great location so I will be staying there.
I was here in September 2016 and absolutely loved the Domaine
du Haut Baran and I know you will as well and how nice not to have to bring an easel
or stool with you.
This watercolor workshop will be “Start to Finish”. Learning to do quick sketches,
value studies, and then to translate them to finished watercolors. Here are some of my
quick value study sketches from my 2016 Trip.
