Join us as we host watercolorist Margaret Fago in our very first online demonstration! She will work from a photo with reflections to show how the abstract framework holds a composition together. Photo and supplies list included if you would like to paint along. Water is a subject that has fascinated Margo for years. She loves to observe its many moods, expressed in varied surface patterns, colors, and lights. Margo spent thirty years as a sail maker partner of Hogin Sails while also a Sunday watercolor painter. She has been painting full time since 2005.
