SECOND CHANCE!!

The October 31st class has filled and due to an overwhelming response for this workshop, I have opened another class. 


Simplified Watercolor Value Study Workshop

“The Road Map to a Masterpiece”

Who wants to do value Studies?  Although I am known for using vibrant colors to create what appears to be playful, spontaneous images in my watercolor paintings, the key to the success of these paintings is the value structure of the compositions.

In this workshop, I teach an easy simplified approach to understanding the value, removing the guesswork and eliminating the stress.  No matter what level painter you are this class is designed to help you improve your success and make painting more enjoyable.

Don't miss out on this value packed workshop!  REGISTER TODAY!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Petunias




Longing for Spring?  For me, painting flowers helps brighten the cold, gray days of winter while anxiously awaiting the budding of springtime.

Winter's Night


"Silent"

This original watercolor painting was incorporated into the advertising design for a watercolor class I instructed through the Metropolitan Library System recently. (Displayed in photo below) Great job by their graphic design department.
