BARCELONA, Spain – “I don’t have a clue on how to paint, Mom ” complained my 12-year-old daughter as we sprinted out the door on a recent Saturday morning to attend a one-day watercolor workshop billed as a “W Day." The event in question ran from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm, included a picnic lunch and art materials, and garnered its name from the W Barcelona -- a sprawling, modern hotel with a total of 473 guest rooms and suites. But there was no need for expertise at such a workshop. All that was necessary was an affection for art and a desire to try one's brush at watercolors.


I must confess that I've been in love for years with the stunning artwork of David Hockney, now 76 and one of the greatest colorists since Matisse. Hockney isn't about just any colors. If you want to be moved, gaze for a while at the cerulean and cobalt blues of Hockney's classic, famous swimming-pool paintings of the 1960s.  Hockney, though, is a master. My daughter and I were mere dabblers.
