    A great drawing is the
    foundation of a great painting.
    Charles Reid, the master of
    contour drawing, will teach
    you how to concentrate on
    interconnecting shapes rather
    than drawing separate objects.
    Discover how to simplify and
    avoid overworking by
    focusing on good paint
    consistency. Practice “direct
    painting”, using as few over-
    washes as possible. Achieve
    the correct color, edge variety,
    and tonal value on the first try.
    Charles is the author of
    Charles Reid’s Watercolor
    Secrets and Charles Reid’s
    Watercolor Solutions, and
    many more. He is a member of

    to join us on one or two great
    painting workshop cruise(s).

    adventures with other artists
    without hauling all kinds of
    equipment. We will paint in the
    comfort of the ship and use
    our "off of the ship time" to
    gather photos and just have
    fun. Karlyn has taught more
    than seventy-five International
    workshops and feels that
    painting and travel are valuable
    learning experiences.
