Meet My Spring Grads
This spring, during watercolour workshops at my Lindsay studio, I had the pleasure of painting with 25 students.
Half of them were in my Pebbles 1-2-3 one-day workshops. Here are the graduation photos from those beginner level sessions. Notice all the smiles! In the first photo, you can see my demonstration painting in the foreground.
Another popular subject was Weathered Wood and Stones, a 2-day workshop that ran twice. I included some 'action' shots below.
Isn't it remarkable how different each painting is, even though we used the same reference photo? We used actual stones for individual inspiration. The photos below are from the second version of the class.
I taught a three-day Sea Shells on Sand workshop for intermediate/advanced students, that produced amazing results. Rather than a reference photo, we used actual shells (donated by one of the students), as well as sea glass and bits of driftwood, to make unique creations. Pictured below are me and my students with our paintings well underway.
Pictured below is a finished painting by one of my students:
And here is my finished demonstration painting Seaside Treasures, including a few detail shots:
Thank you to all my students, who made a watercolour journey with me this spring. Together, we learned a lot!
My Fall 2018 Workshops (1-day, 2-day, or 3-day) will run within the mid October to end of November time frame and will feature some of the same popular subjects that I taught in the spring. Click here to see the workshop schedule.
