Kathy Durdin
One Day Portraiture Workshop


Christina Kimono
"Christina Kimono"

Kathy Durdin’s nationally renowned portraits come alive on the page. She captures the one essential spark about the subject that will make her painting successful. The images which inspire her most touch her emotionally, they are rarely posed. Her style is fresh, quick and immediate. This expressiveness takes advantage of the watercolor medium.

One of Ms. Durdin’s passions is color. She employs color to drive emotion. Her experiments with color involve unusual, unexpected color combinations. She usually applies colors separately, then allows them to blend and mingle on the paper.

Ms. Durdin is a signature member of Florida, Southern, Texas, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Tallahassee and Florida Suncoast Watercolor Societies. She is a past-president of Florida Watercolor Society and currently serves as Director of Operations.

Workshop Fees will be $55.00 for CWS member, $85.00 for non-members.

Workshop begins at 9 AM Saturday, doors of the Whispering Pines Rec Center open at 8 AM. For information about the workshop, contact Peg Lefebvre 352-750-0069

One-Day Workshop
Tom JonesTom Jones


"Tom Jones is a painter who possesses such power that by dipping his brushes in colored water only he gives us the feeling of being before nature itself. Master of his craft, he obtains extremely difficult effects such as moving our soul at the sight of a beam of sunlight piercing through the foliage of the forest. That is magic; That is a great painter."   Pablo Sansegundo-Castaneda

We love Tom Jones! He is an internationally known artist in many corporate and individual collections. He has been an Honorary member of CWS and inspires us with each demo and workshop and is a wonderful fun teacher.

"Tom holds nothing back as he teaches you simple and easy approaches to a beautiful, exciting and successful watercolor painting experience."

Tom shares his passion for art and love of nature with students of varying skill levels through international workshops, demonstrations, and instructional DVDs.

Sue Primeau

Sue refers to her work as abstract reality.  She is passionate about the world in which we live and the beauty that surrounds our everyday life.  It is this readily available subject where she finds her inspiration.  Being that she works primarily in watercolor, a medium she prefers not to control, she often begins by letting the shapes and colors occur spontaneously with little or no guidance.  Sue then studies the resulting image to determine how she will  develop the painting.  
Sue loves to teach watercolor and takes great joy in helping others realize their innate artistic and creative talents.  The questions and challenges of her students drive Sue to explore her own work from many different perspectives.

Sue's originals, giclées, and prints sell largely by word of mouth and she's been commissioned for a number of private works.  Sue exhibits at Artist-Alley Gallery in downtown Ocala as well as numerous juried and non-juried art shows.  She's been licensed on greeting cards and many of her works and painting lessons are published in four how-to books by internationally known, WI artist, Karlyn Holman on the subject of watercolor painting.  Sue has won a number of awards for her work and continues to strive for excellence in all her artistic endeavors. 

Aside from painting Sue loves to teach watercolor locally and abroad.  She finds great joy in helping others realize their innate artistic and creative talents.  The questions and challenges of her students drive Sue to explore her own work from many different perspectives.
