October 2019 

"Copper River" Original Mixed Media by Brit Wray

With Fall officially here, we tend to settle back into our passions, and our routines.  We invite you to check out our upcoming events & classes.  We would love to have you participate and enjoy this next season with us.
Cheers from your local art store & gallery! 
The Layor Crew


The Oregon Watercolor Society began in 1966 with 38 members. Its purpose was “to further the interest of transparent watercolor painting and to encourage a wider experience, enjoyment, and education to the painter and the viewing public.” Its bylaws provided for semi-annual meetings in April and September, each hosting a juried show which would travel throughout the state for a year.  

The opportunity to exhibit, peer and professional critiques, workshops, and artistic networking have benefitted Oregon Watercolor Society members for over five decades. The professional camaraderie continues to encourage growth and creative excellence, promoting watercolor painting across the state.

We are excited to be apart of the first Central Oregon WSO Convention! The 2019 Fall Watercolor Society of Oregon Convention will be held at Riverhouse on the Deschutes and Convention Center on October 4,5,6. 

The Convention coincides with the October First Friday Art Walk, 5-8 pm. Layor Art Supply and Gallery at 1000 NW Wall St will feature local watercolor artists for the month of October. Be sure to stop in and see the art!

*Hey, Look What's New!*


Princeton Aqua Elite Brushes 
Finest Synthetic Kolinsky Sable 


Aqua Elite is an innovative synthetic-hair paint brush that is indistinguishable from natural Kolinsky, yet significantly more affordable. The performance of this new synthetic hair brush technology makes Princeton Aqua Elite the new standard for discerning watercolor artists.

Stonehenge Aqua Black
Watercolor Paper

The first 100% cotton black watercolor paper: Stonehenge Aqua Coldpress Black.

Black watercolor paper is an exciting, new world. Instead of building up shadows, one builds up light. It’s a place where negative space is transformed into positive. And while it may be dark, it’s a chance for those who live and breathe watercolors to bring a new breed of creativity to light.

Saunders Waterford 
Watercolor Paper

Saunders Waterford is an exquisite watercolour paper, traditionally made on a cylinder mould machine. Made using 100% cotton, the highest quality papermaking material, to high archival standards. Each sheet is buffered with calcium carbonate to help defend finished pieces of work from discolouration caused by acids present in atmospheric pollution.

*These products will be featured and demoed at our booths at the
WSO Convention.
