Field Trip: The Foster, Daniel Smith Fine Watercolor Demo, and the Baylands
This month, we have an extra special event: A demonstration by a representative from Daniel Smith Fine Watercolor at The Foster in Palo Alto. We will learn about and get to play with some pigments from my favorite watercolor maker. My Naturalist Store will be at this event, so we will have books, waterbrushes, and Daniel Smith paint for sale, as well as my Custom Watercolor Palette, which features Daniel Smith Fine Watercolor paints. We will also explore and learn from the beautiful artwork of Tony Foster, and take a nature journaling trip to the nearby Palo Alto Note: There will be THREE sessions of Daniel Smith Paint demos. We expect a large turnout for this event, and demo groups will be limited to 30, as a smaller group will enable more people to have this unique and fun hands-on experience.
