Just want to let you know everyone had a great time and learned a lot. I can already tell by the way they were painting this week, trying to keep in mind all the important things you taught them. So glad to see them get in good habits.
Thanks again for sharing your wisdom and gift of painting, you get us all so excited and inspired to paint!
Rarely are great painters
Dear Eric and Ann – what a trip! All that we hoped for and more.
Ann, thank you for your thoughtfulness and your attention to detail. Eric, thank you for bringing out the best in all of us. You are both a good influence and teacher.
My experience at Lake Constance [Germany] was most relaxing. Even if we think our painting is awful, Eric will always find something positive about our work. He also emphasizes that the time is ours and we may choose to paint or sightsee, of
Thank you for providing such an excellent workshop. Each artist was so glad, you taught us so much, especially about how to load a brush and how to make our watercolor painting looser and “free and easy”.
Eric, thank you for teaching me the skills that got my creative juices flowing. Skills that inspired me to think, explore and express myself fearlessly. I look forward to participating in another incredible workshop in the near future.
I have taken several workshops taught by Eric, including two in international settings. Though I have been painting watercolors for many years, I never fail to gain skill and insight from his instruction.

I have found that his suggestions have been consistently helpful in achieving the goals I have had for a particular painting. In most cases, after time for lunch, this process is repeated.
Finally, at the end of the day, there is a critique. This is always very valuable
Eric is a clear, generous and patient teacher. Regardless of the level of the students, he is always constructive and encouraging. I feel that my own work has progressed a great deal as a result of his teaching.
Both Eric and his wife, Ann, who handles most of the administrative duties, are warm and caring people. Together, they are able to create a sense of community among the participants. As a result, the friendly atmosphere, along with the excellent instruction, make for a worthwhile painting experience.
My granddaughter Laurel, and
Eric has a very keen eye in looking and evaluating one’s work. Laurel and I would love to join Eric and Ann for next year’s Watercolor Workshop in Spain, if we can arrange it. Thank you so very much, both Eric and Ann. Ann’s job is to put these wonderful workshops together. This wonderful event will be a lovely memory for a very long time.
