Thank you so much to Connie Clutter who gave us a wonderful presentation and demonstration of her water color portrait painting. Connie shared how she came about doing period reenactment portraits and detailed her style and method of portrait painting and was incredibly sharing with her techniques and which materials that she uses.
With her calm happy demeanor It was such a pleasure to watch and learn from such an accomplished artist. She shared stories about how she chooses her models, answered any and all questions we had (we had tons), and didn't hesitate sharing how she uses technology to her advantage including overcoming technical issues. Connie has her new website up and running so please be sure to visit it and maybe buy a print while you're there. If you happened to miss last night's meeting you can learn about Connie on her new website.
Thanks again Connie you are a gem!
