“Bringing the Everyday to Life with Watercolor”

The 2018 WVWS Workshop will feature another talented and popular artist, Brienne M. Brown, NWS, of Julian, Pa. The workshop will be at our new venue in scenic Ritchie County at North Bend State Park near Harrisville, W.Va., and is scheduled for August 1-5, 2018.

North Bend State Park can be reached at 304-643-2931 ext. 0 for reservations. Find them on the Web at http://northbendsp.com or email them at northbend@wv.gov for information. The park is located between Harrisville (the county seat of Ritchie County) and the picturesque community of Cairo. From Parkersburg, the park is about 40 minutes east, and from Clarksburg, it is about 1 hour to the west.

Brienne M. Brown is nationally known and has achieved numerous awards and recognition, including Honorable Mention in the 2017 Solomon’s Plein Air Festival and 2017 Outstanding Watercolor in the September Bold Brush Online Competition. She holds signature membership in The National Watercolor Society, Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, Plein Air Painters of Central Pennsylvania and many others. She also has exhibited with The American Watercolor Society.

Brienne Brown’s passion is watercolor and plein air painting. She says, “I find beauty in everyday life, the so called ‘mundane.’ Ordinary people going about their everyday lives inspires me. I especially enjoy painting in plein air, where each painting reminds me of where I was, of the experiences I had, the sounds, smells, and the people I met. As I try and capture the essence of a scene, my paintings are always more about a moment in time than about a particular location. I enjoy sharing how I see the world.”
