Painting Kauai's Exotic Orchids in Watercolor

Mahalo to everyone who participated in or helped organize my workshop at Kauai's Orchid and Art Festival in Hanapepe on Saturday! I was so amazed by the talent and style of these art students that I wanted to share their creations in progress:













Several of these budding artists said they have never tried or had much luck at watercolor before! Every single student painted a winner!
A Big Mahalo to Schar and Crystal for helping me during the workshop! We had so much fun listening to the live music of Cindy Combs and Makana. What a blast! Great orchids, art, music, people, food, and the list goes on. If you are on Kauai next year at the end of March, don't miss this event!
