About the Book
Portable Palettes is about traveling and painting with watercolor. I discovered the joy of this wonderful activity when I began my European watercolor touring business. It passes on information that I've gathered as a painting teacher while traveling in France, Italy and Greece. It is a guide for independant travelers who want to paint what they see as they travel and will provide a structure to start you on your way to finding the satisfaction that comes with visual journaling. If you like the idea of spending part of a sunny vacation day under a tree, in a grassy field or on rocky hill, totally immersed in drawing and watercolor painting, you will find this book a helpful tool.
I have a master's degree in painting and printmaking. I am represented by Davidson Galleries in Seattle, WA and other galleries in California. Mr. Davidson has made sure that my work is seen nation wide. I've taught painting and printmaking for 25 years. I currently spend most of my time in my studio accept for when I'm taking people to Europe and teaching them to paint with watercolor.
