San Antonio Workshop

Workshop emphasis is on techniques and strategies for transforming ordinary scenes into extraordinary ones with watercolor; scenes that reach out and connect with viewers. I teach simple easy to learn methods that appeal to beginners as well as seasoned artists looking for renewed inspiration and insights into new ways of thinking. You learn from clear explanations about the reasoning behind artistic decisions and visually from step by step demonstrations. You learn to distill and process scenes from inspiration to finished work of art becoming more comfortable with the medium in the process. Once technical aspects of watercolor have been mastered you too will begin to paint from that sacred place that resides within each of us. I bring my passion and love for teaching to inspire and motivate in a fun, fast-paced workshop. Following are a few of the topics covered in my workshop…

  • atmospheric perspective in the landscape
  • simplifying and streamlining scenes
  • working toward personal style by developing a visual language
  • steps for building strong compositions
  • painting “relationships” instead of “things”
  • seven important design principles for creating exciting paintings
  • working with photographs, sketch books and color studies
  • planning strategies that will allow you to paint spontaneously and with confidence
  • daily lectures and demonstrations
  • lots of one-on-one instruction
  • Something for every level
