Painting by Diane Dubreuil
Hamden Art League welcomes Diane DubreuilDiane Dubreuil to present Watercolor Journaling at Hamden Art League Meeting
The March meeting of the Hamden Art League will feature New Milford artist Diane Dubreuil with a program and demo on watercolor journaling. Focusing on how to develop a watercolor journal for traveling or simply painting "en plein air", Diane will demonstrate drawing techniques and the stages of layering in transparent watercolor washes in local colors. The journals are a great way to capture unique images in a short period of time, making notes about atmosphere, color, noise, etc. which can be used in planning a final painting. Dubreuil will use photos of her travels to show what she would capture on paper as well as her methods used. She will share journal samples from her trips to France, Italy, Maine and the local New Milford area.
The artist was raised in Maine and spent a great deal of time outdoors. Her interest in art and “plein air” painting began at an early age and has continued throughout her adult life. Currently serving as chairwoman of the New Milford (CT) Commission on the Arts, Diane is a signature member of the International Plein Air Painters WORLDWIDE, is a juried member of the New England Watercolor Society, a member of the CT Plein Air Painters, a member of the NH Plein Air Painters, member of the Plein Air Painters of Maine, and several local CT and ME art organizations. She works commercially, teaches watercolor workshops and exhibits her work in regional shows and galleries.
The meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 in the Social Hall of the Miller Memorial Library Senior Center, 2901 Dixwell Avenue, Hamden. Coffee and conversation begins at 7:00 pm, followed by a brief general business meeting at 7:15 and the artist's program at 7:30. The public is invited to attend. If the library is closed due to inclement weather, the meeting will be cancelled.
