Watching Paint Dry is an on location watercoloring web series. Think Bob Ross, just outside. I have had the great opportunity to be apart of the on location crew. The CREW. Jane Mason is a very talented artist, speaker and teacher, she does amazing work. Graham Mason is the man who brings the vision to the screen and makes it all happen behind the scenes as Director of Photography. Danielle Dutton is Make-Up extraordinare, Wardrobe, Assistant Camera, Swing G&E, and whatever else needs to be done.
My travels have taken me to cities and towns all over the country. This includes Minnesota. Missouri, and Northern California. Not only have I been able to see cool locations but the series also interviews local artists from that area. Including Anthony Caponi, Mary Alinder, and James Alinder.

This video shows you how to set up for watercolor outside (en plein air). Generally, when I paint in watercolor I am sitting down, although you can set up standing up at an easel, if you prefer. This is another video when a bee lands on me----they seem to enjoy watching me paint!
In this series Jane M. Mason paints a lake scene on location in Pine River, MN. This is the first part in a five-part series. Enjoy! In "Pine River Painting,"Jane M. Mason is creating a watercolor painting of a quiet lake, with milkweed in the foreground, large rocks clumped for butterflies, & a forested bank across the lake.
