A workshop for the Brevard Watercolor Society, Melbourne, Florida, is in the works.

More details and contact info to come.

I have heard that watercolor is the difficult medium. It is my hope this is true. This keeps it exciting and not for everyone. Learning starts with a stroke of the brush and a follow through, like the strum of guitar strings or the shooting of a basket. My classes begin with the basics of brushes, paints, and paper and move into that all important design and composition.

Watch how your painting will come alive when the foundation is exciting, abstract or otherwise. Each day different topics will be discussed or demonstrated. Personal expression is encouraged. Lessons are designed to explore color and compositional possibilities to spark ordinary subjects into eye catching visuals. Individual and group critiques will be given.  Dive right in. Ask questions. A casual friendly atmosphere makes the class a fun and rewarding adventure.
