|The creative process|
By Mary Friedel-Hunt
October is truly my favorite month of the year. I love the weather, the colors and our Fall Art Tour where visitors can see the artists at work in their studios and take some art home if they wish.
I don’t think I really appreciated what goes into a watercolor painting until I started painting. I did not realize how much there was (and is) to learn about brushes, strokes, mixing paints, layers, light, and a long list of other skills one needs to acquire in order to create a painting. Hours of practice and learning are involved, but more than that is the matter of translating feelings and insights into colors and shapes.Our valley is rich in artists, most of whom are not rich in money,
