Service Description

Funny how a little puddle of paint and water can cause such terror !... So many people tell me watercolour is hard or that it intimidates them, but there's no need to be afraid! It’s just water, paint and a piece of paper - honest! I teach traditional transparent watercolour and show you how to correct your mistakes or turn those whoopsie-daisies into original art so you can relax and enjoy the ride. I just adore watercolour and I know you will as well. By the way, almost all of my regular watercolour participants started out as complete beginners and are now very accomplished painters in the Advanced class who produce rather exceptional work and you can too! I'm very proud of them, so like an Art Mama, I get to brag a little! Learn the joy of modern watercolour from someone who loves the medium, has made lots of mistakes and wants the class to be informative and fun! We do lots of experimenting but also learn how to create finished paintings. I am happy to say that I have studied with some of the very best watercolour artists/instructors from Canada, the US and Italy - Harold Allanson, Stephen Quiller, John Salminen, Carla O'Connor, Leslie Redhead and Marco Klee Fallani - and they don't get better than this, in my opinion! I'm so grateful for everything I have learned from them and can also share with you. Class handouts , demonstrations and supplies are provided. Students learn to set up their own palette for painting at home between classes and try some of the many supplies in this area before buying them. A supply list is provided for those who want to know what to buy at the Art store to avoid confusion. We focus on how to start and finish a painting and how to gain confidence with the medium. Supplies are Included By purchasing this course you agree to our cancellation policy.
