Watercolor painted loosely with FEELING. Break free of the tyranny of detail. In this workshop you will first be grounded in the basics of technique to give you the ability to control the medium rather than at the mercy of it. Then you can enter the world of design, color, shapes and values to produce YOUR PERSONAL EXPRESSION of the world around you.


I have been teaching painting for over 25 years and in the process developed an approach that leaves nothing hidden. The entire creative process is exposed and explained in the words of the world’s greatest watercolor painters with whom I have studied extensively. I am signature member of 7 major watercolor societies, having shown in over 130 national juried shows with 30 plus awards. Teaching, however, is a distinct and separate ability from painting. I have worked as hard at learning to teach as learning to paint.
