For the past several years we have had guests who were in town to attend the Coastal Maine Art Workshops. One guest has stayed with us over the past several years and we’ve gotten to know him quite well. This year he asked if the class could come to the inn for the instructor to do a demo. Of course we jumped at the opportunity! This morning about 20 students and the instructor, watercolor artist Alvaro Catagnet, came to the inn for a demonstration. The group gathered in our living room to watch Alvaro do his magic.
Alvaro ended up doing beautiful painting of the club chairs against the picture window in about an hour. It is amazing how he was able to capture the light coming in through the window. This was a very exciting morning for us and is just one of the many reasons we love what we do! We hope they come back again next year. We can’t wait to see what Alvaro will capture next. Make sure to check out his website by clicking here. His use of color and how he captures light and dark is truly evocative!
