Stephen Quiller Demo in St. Louis

Thanks to Jerie Artz for this lovely slide show of the Stephen Quiller demo last night at the workshop being held here in St. Louis by the Saint Louis Watercolor Society.  This is copyrighted which means you can share it but not copy and sell it.  Very nice work, Jerie!

Jerie says, "
Several of us went to St. Louis last night to see an amazing water media demo by Stephen Quiller. "Play and listen to the painting" he mentioned over and over. He certainly was listening as he captured on paper a sunset from one of his daily late after cross country skiing outing near his home in Colorado.
