  1. Thank You for these inspiring articles. As an acrylic painter, I often use watercolor techniques. I search my area around the West Denver foothills for watercolor classes and find a few talented visualists willing to share their talent. The color mixing with pigments is much more earthy.
    I learn lots from American Watercolor.
