The Ultimate Daniel Smith Watercolor Palette for your Journaling and Painting

I had a wonderful visit with my friend and artist Cindy Briggs in Seattle. We demonstrated and taught at Daniel Smith Artist Material Stores in Seattle and Bellevue. Our focus was on watercolor journals. We had a lovely group of artists in our class. They painted 5 paintings in one day. AMAZING! Thank you for joining us. We used beautiful New England photos that we mostly took on our artist cruise last spring from Quebec City to Boston. Now we are introducing the wonderful – Cindy Briggs & Theresa Goesling Daniel Smith Watercolor Travel & Journal Kit   –http://www.danielsmith.com/Item–i-001-901-222.

See the photo below for more information. One funny discovery was about the word “Journaling”, what do you think?

“Journaling” is not a typical word in your Webster Dictionary or one that you can find in any dictionary today, but it is a word that anyone, especially creative people and artists alike, use to describe; “the act of creatively capturing and recording your thoughts, through designing in a journal”.

You can journal with items such as; photos, scraps, collage, stitching, mementos and anything that your visual imagination can dream up!     -Theresa Goesling

Paint Venice 2014

We are excited to announce our upcoming workshop in Venice, Italy.  It has been a dream of ours to follow in the footsteps of John Singer Sargent and paint the canals, architecture, and atmosphere of timeless Venice.  Instead of dropping in like a tourist, we want to immerse ourselves in the picturesque locations and take time to really see Venice as an artist.  We are also excited to visit Murano – the island where glassmakers have been making beautiful works of art for centuries – along it’s central canal you will find charming shops and cafes to paint and explore. And will spend a day on Burano, a delightful island filled with playful color – from the buildings and reflections to the boats,  clothes pins, umbrellas, and curtains – everything is colorful!  We are excited to be collaborating with Cooking-Vacations.com to put this special package together for our guests.  In Tuscany we provided a cooking class experience, and now in Venice we are including it also.  A different experience to add flavor to your trip.  If you click on the image it will take you to our VENICE 2014 page with more information about the tour.

We Love Color!

This summer we attended a lecture and tour at the Daniel Smith Factory where we discovered the wonders of Daniel Smith colors.
It was amazing to see where the colors started, and how they were developed.  All very top secret recipes we were able to see behind the scenes the process of creating the colors that we use in our palettes and more!  What impressed us most was how permanent the colors are compared to other brands, the intensive testing that goes into each color mix, and the variety of colors Daniel Smith continues to create.  We are so pleased to have been involved in the development of our own color “Neutral Tint” which can be mixed with all of Daniel Smith colors to darken or neutralize the color – doubling the effectiveness of your palette.  Thanks to John and Ron at Daniel Smith for the behind the scenes tour!
We hope you’ll join us at our upcoming Daniel Smith Events.  Click Here for more information!

Prince Edward Island

Anne of Green Gables Home

This was one of our favorite locations on our Quebec to Boston Cruise in May.  We had such a delightful group of artists and enjoyed our painting excursions, onboard workshop, group dinners, and nights of music at the Piano Bar.  Thank you to everyone who joined us.
