In this watercolor workshop you will learn how to use a limited palette of only three transparent staining hues to achieve a full spectrum of color, using layering, mingling and mixing of three hues to create luminous, magical paintings.

Students will be given guidance in creating fun Steampunk paintings using Jeannie’s photos and imagery, as well as various other inspirations.

This workshop will help you build your watercolor painting skills and confidence, and learn ways to strengthen the design structure of your paintings.


Happily returning to the Mendocino Art Center, one of her favorite venues to teach, JEANNIE VODDEN is a popular instructor of watercolor.

Jeannie has a unique approach to watercolor, which she generously shares with her students. She uses a very limited palette of transparent staining color, paints in layers, mingling color, wet-on-dry paper, as she goes.

She has taught workshops throughout California, Wyoming and Washington State for over 20 years. She enjoys demonstrating her watercolor techniques to art and community organizations. Her work has won many awards in local and national shows and has been published in national and international magazines. For several years she demonstrated in the “California Works” Fine Art Show at the California State Fair, sharing her work and talking to visitors of the well-regarded fine art venue.
