California Vibe Watercolor Portraiture in the Heart of Silicon Valley





Last week I was in Cupertino, California (in the heart of Silicon Valley) giving one of my California Vibe Watercolor Portraiture demonstrations for the Cupertino Fine Arts League. In the first photo, I am showing the audience a quarter sheet selfie that was exhibited in the first International Watermedia Exhibition in Bangkok, Thailand last year. The second photo shows me power spritzing the start of the CA Vibe self portrait that I had started. After an hour or so of painting and fielding a lot of questions, this is as far as I got. The audience gave me a good round of applause and figured that I had completed the watercolor. I went back to my hotel room to evaluate it after the demo and said "it ain't done". The following day, back at my studio in Sacramento, I spent about another half hour or there-abouts to bring my selfie to completion. Remember dear readers, if you want me to conduct one of my California Vibe Watercolor Portraiture workshops in your neck of the woods, please contact me for details.

And I thought Cupertino was just a fairyland that only existed in the iCloud. hehe

David- I thought Cupertino was a fairyland too, but it is great and populated by humans. I thought only gnome-like creatures.
