This 8 week online watercolor workshop offers all the fundamentals for creating a professional looking watercolor painting. Beginners don’t be intimidated:  We will start with the basic fundamentals training the eye and mind to interpret a scene in correct values of lights and darks.  Each week we build on the previous lesson using a limited palette at first and gradually expanding the palette to include a wider range of color.   We will explore all elements needed to create a work of art including color theory and effective strategies for expressive, spontaneous brushwork.  My workshops start with the basics and build to more advanced techniques.  Whether a beginner or more experienced painter the workshop is designed to make each participant a better painter while having a lot of fun in the process.   


Please note: this class will be 100% online via Zoom, you will be receiving the invitation to join 1 week before class begins.
