MINUTES - APRIL 4, 2018
Kathy Lang opened the April meeting. We welcomed new member: Debbie Cannatella and guest Ray Burt from the Cincinnati Art Club.
Tom Schroeder, our new Program Chairperson introduced our guest Artist, Yuki Hall, to the members. This was a very well attended meeting. Yuki demonstrated how to break away from a “cooking in” style and start painting watercolor with confident brush strokes for a more spontaneous and impressionistic style. Yuki strives to create an atmosphere in the painting without being bogged down with too much details. She gave a wonderful presentation.
