Wetcanvas Watercolour Ontario Meet ~ Watercolour Wednesday

This past weekend I attended the Ninth Annual Wetcanvas Watercolour Ontario Meet, which was held in Dundas Ontario. This is a bunch of artists who met on the Wetcanvas website over the years and have become good friends. The weekend usually consists of a watercolour workshop and various other demonstrations, lots of good food and conversation, and tons of fun!

This year, my friend Charlene McGill demonstrated how she paints glass jars in watercolour. She is an excellent teacher, very patient with all of us! All of the paintings turned out great. Mine isn't quite finished yet, but I did get over my fear of painting glass!

While Char was teaching, and when people had a free moment, I demonstrated some Gelli® printing, which we also played with the next day to make covers for some fun books Char taught us to make. More on that later!

Here is my mostly finished painting:

And the "Wall of Fame", all of our paintings together:


  1. Wish I could have been there again this year. I enjoy seeing all of you who were there in the photos and your lovely glass jar paintings. Char is such a good teacher, especially when she has such brilliant students. ;) Sylvia

  2. Would have loved to join you there. I need
    to find out how that works :)

    Have a great day
