By March 21st, we’re hoping for an early Spring!  But, rain or shine, The March meeting project will be a watercolor painting designed by Dottie Shultz, “California Poppies”.

The project will fit into an 8”x10” frame, with the painting mounted into a precut white 8”x10” white mat or it can be a card if you prefer.
I will supply the watercolor paper, paint and masking fluid. I will bring extra rubber lifters or bring yours if you have one.

Supplies to bring, watercolor palette or plastic trays, DecoArt Dazzling Metallic Glorious Gold paint, ¾” wash brush, #6 and #8 round brushes, watercolor brushes if you have them, #1 script liner, old tooth brush, low tack masking tape, 4x 6 index card, gold marking pen, fine or extra fine, square or T-square ruler, precut white 8×10 mat with 4 ½” x 6 ½” opening (optional), board to tape you watercolor paper to larger than 10” x 7” (Plexiglas or foam core boards work well). If you plan to do the framed piece instead of a card, bring the mat along for the class, as it also gets splattered.

Hope you will join us in March to paint poppies.
