Materials list

Please join me for a 5-day watercolor workshop as we paint a variety of subjects with a focus on using plenty of water and pigment to exploit the wonder and intrinsic beauty of the medium.  We will avoid the pitfalls of noodling with fussy details and instead focus on design as the foundation for taking our paintings to the next level. During the week we will also discuss the importance of good drawing skills, basic color theory, perspective, and more! With this knowledge we will explore and experience the “magic” that makes watercolor so distinctive. Each day will begin with a full demonstration and I will also be available throughout the day for individual instruction and additional demonstrations as necessary. We’ll wrap up the day with a critique session, which is an excellent opportunity for everyone to learn from each other and the single most valuable aspect of a good workshop. Workshop weeks 1 & 2 will both focus on design and how to elevate our work but with unique demonstrations each day. You’re invited for all this and so much more in a fun-filled and relaxed environment!

Thank you to our sponsors!
