Tricia Reichert to Demonstrate at February Meeting

Well known Central Coast artist and Signature Member of CCWS, Tricia Reichert, with do the Demonstration at 7:00 pm for the February 28th CCWS meeting. Tricia, has honored our group with well attended demos in the past and this time around she will be showing us how to use “Ink Line and Wash.” She often uses this technique in her journals when she travels and when painting plein-air locally. Sometimes she sketches in ink first and then adds washes and sometimes she adds ink line to a piece that has already been painted. This demo will give you the idea of the characteristics and applications of using pen and ink. 

Tricia was born and raised in England. She studied Home Economics and Textile Art at Battersea College, London University and then taught high school for many years, before relocating to the US with her husband.

From a very young child she had always had a yearning to create, and that original, inventive journey has taken many different forms over the years including drawing, painting in all media, fabric panels, costumes, theater sets, illustrations, prints and even unique wedding cakes and invitations… and always with a little teaching along the way.

The opportunity to seriously focus on art began more than twenty eight years ago. Over time, Tricia has become a specialist in the practice and theory of portraiture, particularly in the mediums of pastel and watercolor. Her other areas of expertise and interest include many forms of printmaking and clay figure and bust sculpture. She is currently a professional commissioned, portrait artist with many paintings in private collections in the US and Europe.

Tricia is also an art teacher working with groups and individuals on a wide range of classes and workshops, both privately, and for the last twelve years, through Cal Poly University’s Extended Education division.
