I wish I wasn't a plane ride away :). The list is great though. I always like updating my art supplies. Any chance you are making handouts that you could post online?... for money :).

Hi David,

Thanks for your interest in the materials and workshop. I know many folks live far away from Northern California, and that can make it a big hurdle to come out.

The good news is that I will be releasing, hopefully later this year a Gouache & Watercolor painting DVD. The focus will be on small quick sketch paintings and how you can plan for bigger works. The folks at the Gnomon School are helping me make this title a reality. I will post more info as we get closer to selling it.

I looked into flights out there - too much for now, but I will definitely get the dvds. Thanks for sharing your experience/teaching with us man!

Hi Shane,

Thanks for your interest in the workshop. I may do a workshop in Florida next year, I will keep you posted on that. Which makes it much closer for folks on the East Coast.

So I tried to get into your workshop, I was a little to late. It filled up fast, do you do this once a year? I live in Sacramento and so it is not to far for me, was there a huge over flow of students? Just a big fan of your work and would love to do your workshop some day. The material list is great to see, thanks for sharing.

Hi Michael,

If there is more interest for an additional Northern California workshop, I would like to consider one in the Bay Area next year. I will keep you posted. I think doing a plein air one would be good to do with concept artists as well as tradtional painters and perhaps a digital sketch class could be neat too. I am open to suggestions.

Thanks for your interest and sorry this workshop filled up so fast.

Erik, a Northern California workshop or plein air session would be great for this year. Many thanks! Congrats on the DVD.
