Our experienced instructor will guide you through the process of understanding and applying the principles of painting, including color theory, composition, and brushwork. We will cover topics such as using light and shadow to create depth and drama, capturing the colors and textures of the landscape, and experimenting with different brushstrokes and techniques to create stunning effects.

Title or Location: Untitled
Part of what makes this one of my favorite pieces was I knew when to stop. I tend to overly fuss with pieces, continuing with touch-up to the point where I end up making a mess of what had been a great piece. But with this one, I stopped even though I still had the itch to fix the "imperfections," and it's all the better for it.

Title or Location: Mr. Fish
Painted this in an Alexis Cant? online watercolor class. Just starting to venture into the watercolor world, this painting is in memory of a great fish friend I had - Mr. Fish. He was just a tiny little goldfish when I put him in my outdoor pond and in 3 years he was a giant beautiful fancy goldfish. He had great personality to.

Title or Location: Vast Landscape - Sky Study
This piece is a 9 x 12 inch watercolor on Fabriano 140lb cold-pressed paper. This was a result of practicing skyscapes for a commission, added to the "reject" pile. When the commissioned artwork was finished, I went through my pile of practice paintings and was so surprised by this sky. I fell in love with it. The landscape was added to compliment the sky, imaging the view of a bird in flight. It remains one of my favorite watercolor pieces, a reminder of success over perceived failure.

Title or Location: Wild Carrots At Dusk
I named this watercolor "Wild Carrot At Dusk" (18"x14.25") I wanted to capture the sun setting on some Wild Carrots or Dacus Carota you probably call it Queen Anne's Lace. This painting is part of a series where I am working to feature everyday things in our environment to celebrate them and have the viewer look closer at their glory. Therefore I use beautiful colors and knockout textures to bring out the beauty in nature, hopefully making you look twice. The symbolism of this wild flower is san

I am trying to paint in watercolour without doing to much drawing first. I was pleased with this attempt.My Dad used to grow lovely roses and Sweer Williams. He always gave Mum red roses on her birthday or wedding anniversary. Sadly they both died a few years ago but painting these flowers brought back happy memories.
