FAA September 2018 Meeting with Watercolorist Eileen McCullough

Shaved Ice
FAA to Welcome Watercolorist Eileen McCullough at September Meeting


Watercolor artist Eileen McCullough will be the demonstrator at the Sat., Sept. 15 meeting at The Fallbrook Women’s Club, 238 W. Mission Road. The meeting will begin at 9:30 am, and will include a critique of members’ paintings (one work each) by the guest artist from 9:30 to 10:15 am, followed by her demonstration. The public is invited.
Eileen McCullough is a plein air watercolor artist.  She lives in Huntington Beach, California and has made her home town her favorite subject matter.  Her paintings capture everyday life, hiking through the Bolsa Chica wetlands, dining outdoors and walking dogs in Central Library park.  It is the artist’s strong belief that a connection to your subject is imperative for a successful painting.
While taking classes and workshops she developed her strong style.  Her paintings are saturated with bold color and lyrical brushwork.  Eileen is a full-time watercolor artist.  “My formal training as an artist began very young.  My father was a watercolor artist and would take me out on location to paint.  By the time I was ten, I had a sketchbook full of my drawings.”
In 1982, Eileen moved to Southern California to attend the University of Long Beach.  After graduating, she made Huntington Beach her permanent home.  “While I loved my new home, I was at a loss as what to paint.”  This changed for the artist when she had her first child in 2000.  Her time was spent playing outdoors with her son.  She discovered the wonderful parks, nurseries and nature centers Huntington Beach has to offer.
Eileen McCullough showed her watercolors this summer at the prestigious Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach.
After McCoullough’s demonstration, she will conduct a watercolor workshop from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. The workshop is open to both beginners and advanced painters, members and non-members. The cost for members is $40 ($35 to the artist, $5 to FAA), and the cost for non-members is $50 ($45 to the artist, $5 to FAA). To register, call Carol Reardon at (760) 731-6677. Participants need to register in advance by sending in checks to reserve a spot.  Reardon will then email a list of supplies to bring, and the class agenda.
