Kalvag NORWAY! Watercolor Workshop
I have spent the last week teaching watercolor in a beautiful fishing village off the West Coast of Norway--- in Kalvag, NORWAY population 900.
It was an absolute dream.
Perfect crystal clear Norwegian waters, amazing light and sunsets, wonderful students... captivating imagery.
NOT to mention the amazing fresh SEAFOOD~! Whale, lobster, crab, cod, cod tongue, mackeral, herring, scallop, mussels... you name it... all FRESH and harvested locally.
The boats would come in DAILY -- with their haul.
What a tremendous experience-- to work and live in a picturesque village-- with imagery all around.
The students painted crabs, boats, and water.
All in all.... a "10" of a workshop!
Thank you Karin-- of Sommerakademiet for arranging a tremendous workshop.
We had 13 students from Norway and Sweden. All of them were great artists and engaging friends.
Thank you too... Solveig and Alfred-- for all you did to make my transportation and trip an awesome experience. I feel as though I know a LOT more about Norway-- and it's gorgeous landscape and friendly people.
Long live the VIKING!
