The third annual watercolor workshop, by regular Virgin Islands visitor Sandy Meyer, will be held Friday and Saturday, Jan. 15 and 16. The theme Will be "The Colors of Life."
Watercolorist Meyer, who stays on Water Island, specializes in intricate florals in both still life and scenic settings.
She took up painting with passion in 1986, when illness forced her to change her lifestyle. She started painting and has not stopped.
Her workshop approach is to have a talk and demo in the basics, then dig right in.
"I do a demonstration, then have everyone catch up, " Meyers said. "Then another demonstration and another paint session."
All participants will work from the same enlargement of a black and white photograph with flowers in the foreground and soft trees in the background. Everyone will leave the class with a finished painting.
Both beginners and advanced painters are invited to participate. Supplies will be available for sale, but Meyers suggested that participants should bring whatever they have to work with.
She exhibits extensively in North Platte, Neb., her hometown.
For more details, call Tillett Gardens at 775-1929.
