The following are links to watercolor organizations or companies I like.


Central Florida Watercolor Society

This terrific and active group of folks in the greater Orlando area are great fun and sponsor workshops, paint-outs, trips to out of town shows, watercolor cruises and community activities from September through May. If you live there, check them out. You’ll be glad you did!

Four Leaf Press

Great website from my favorite (and a famous) author, my daughter Elizabeth King. Describes her writings, current publications regarding autism (she is the mother of an adult autistic son), soon to be published children's books about disabilities, and lots of other good stuff.

The Florida Artist Group (FLAG)

This premier group of professional Florida artists,incorporated in 1949, is made up of artists whose work has attained national or state-wide recognition. I am proud to be a member of of FLAG, the purpose of the which is to

stimulate attainment of the highest standards of creative art within the State of Florida. The group sponsors an annual symposium and members' show, as well as local shows by district.

The Florida Artists' Registry

This site offers a listing of artists in Florida and elsewhere, along with examples of their work, artist's statements, and website links.

Florida Watercolor Society

FWS is the largest state watercolor organization in the US, and boasts some of the country’s finest watercolor artists as well. The annual meeting, trade show and Annual Exhibit comprise an impressive and fun event for all involved.

National Watercolor Society

This organization you know well as the premier national society on the west coast. Great art and great people.

Sam Flax of Orlando

The local Orlando Sam Flax is a home-owned and operated establishment, with a good range of artist's material and all too attractive doodads, as well as a great staff of helpful, knowledgeable folks.

Cheap Joe's Art Stuff

Materials source for a broad range of stuff at good prices.

Jerry's Artarama
Another source I’ve used for years.
Kremer Pigments
Another great place to acquire pigments and ready-mixed inks. These shellac based inks are powerful and lightfast, and should provide lots of color and opportunity for gouache resist fans.
Dick Blick Art Supplies
Dick Blick is another great source for materials, having a bigger variety than almost any other company.
