May Meeting

Wednesday, May 11th, 7pm our guest
artist is our
Eileen McCullough, she will demonstrate her techniques using watercolor. Bring an artist friend to this meeting!

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.
Eileen has had a busy career as an illustrator. She has worked in the surf wear industry, N.R.N Designs and Dekra Lite. During all the years of freelancing she always made time for watercolor painting. “I was lucky to have access to such gifted artists as Tim Clark, Linda Stevens, and Chris Sullivan.”
While taking classes and workshops she developed her strong style. Her paintings are saturated with bold color and lyrical brushwork. Eileen is now working full time as a 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.” Eileen was born and raised in Northern California. “I lived in watercolor country: redwood forest, the jagged coastline, and abandoned farmhouses were everywhere.”
