The Aquarellista! Membership

Just a little try-out paper of an Aquarellista! member
Aquarellista is still in the developmental stages, but there has been a lot of thinking going on already!
I am convinced that we need to have a membership, and for the time being that membership will be free of charge. We are in the start-up phase and I'll be happy and rewarded to find others that feel the same as I do.

Let's get started with a current definition for Aquarellista members:
They are "Every artist*) worldwide that works mainly with aquarelle and is proud of it and would like to join a movement that promotes the use of aquarelle!"

*) An artist is a person that takes responsibility for his creations and has a strong urge to create his artwork, whenever and wherever he can.

The advantages of being an Aquarellista! member

* You"belong"!
* Aquarelle will finally get the image and reputation of a serious medium that can bring forth important works of art.

*You are member of a group of "mates" that could help each other, with hints, tips and tricks, going from technical stuff to locations to exhibit to commissions.

To become a member: for now - just comment to a post on this blog - I'll receive that as an email and we'll take it from there. The requirement should be proof that you fulfill the above definitions - you are an artist, you work with aquarelle and are proud of it, and want to help promoting the fine art of Aquarelle.

We are developing a logo for your website or correspondence, a kind of hallmark that shows you are part of a serious movement.

We will seek publicity, press releases and have a website.

We will be in touch with all art schools, galleries, Aquarelle suppliers etc.

I'm up for any ideas! Aquarellista from all countries, Unite!Just an illustration: I'm working on a commission for painting a wonderful house in the South of France. Will keep you posted!
