Instructor – Watercolor


What I’ll be teaching? Welcome! My classes are very demonstration heavy, so you will learn a lot through step by step instructions. Our lessons will be focused on animal and landscape painting techniques for ALL levels with a focus on TEXTURE and SPECIAL EFFECTS. Structure and flow of lessons will be grouped into themes: trees & grasses, skies and water, rocks and cliffs, fur texture and animal features from equine & bovine to wildlife (such as wolves and elk.)

PLEASE EMAIL ME FOR DIGITAL REFERENCE PHOTOS that you may want  upload to your tablets  / laptops or to have printed out for in class demos.

These images will be available a few weeks prior to the Rendezvous

Artwork that speaks to your heart…
“Whether I am working on a personal or corporate commission in oil, watercolour, pencil or pastel, my objective is to get at the heart of my subject matter. My work reflects my rural roots and is a collision of two worlds: Realism and Expressionism. Realism allows me to affect the cerebral that is human nature – our desire to recognize a shape, place and subject, while the strokes, drips and splatter are the result of an intuitive relation to the medium at hand. Bridging the ephemeral; nostalgia, resilience, desire, loss, love. I love connecting with others through my artwork.”
