My article Seeing Color in the Desert (originally posted on CaliforniaDesertArt.com) has been reprinted in the August/September 2014 issue of International Artist magazine. It originally started with notes from my sketchbook about what I was observing while out painting, and what to do about certain problems that color posed or provided a solution to.
I've just put new painting workshops on the calendar, so they're now open to registration. These workshops have limited space available, and are filled on a first come first served basis. For more info and to register, visit ericmerrell.com/workshops.html
