Paint in One of my Favorite Places in US

'Take Me Back To Texas'                11x14            pastel              ©Karen Margulis
It was a place on my bucket list. I knew I would like it but I wasn't prepared to fall in love! It only took a drive into the countryside outside of Austin, Texas to know I would not only love it....I would be back! The Texas Hill Country during Bluebonnet season stole my heart!

Last April I was hosted by Marsha Young of the Butterfly Gallery in Dripping Springs Texas for a 3 day pastel workshop. The weather was wonderful, the Bluebonnets in bloom and everything begged to be painted. I was happy to share with a talented and enthusiastic group of artists. We learned a lot and made great memories.

I am happy to announce that I will be going back to this fantastic place next April! This time I will be team teaching with my good friend and fantastic artist, Marsha Savage. Marsha and I will be on a road trip on our way to Tuscon, Arizona for the Plein Air Convention. We couldn't resist planning a stop in Dripping Springs and Marsha Young was happy to host us again.

If you'd like to read a review of the last workshop visit my blog post (click here.) There is also a quick video of Mt Gainor Inn... one of the lodging choices and a painting location.

If the Texas Hill Country is on your bucket list consider joining us for up 3 day workshop next April. Details below.

About today's painting: 11x14 on Uart 500. This was a demo painting for a private student. I began with a 4 value block-in with warm colors and did a dry wash. This scene was from one of the many photos I took  last April in Hill Country!

I had to smile, sometimes I think you keep track of locations by their wildflowers!
