I love painting flowers, and from the looks of my students’ paintings, I’m not the only one! I’ve enjoyed seeing what inspires my beginning & intermediate painters, from works in progress… (aren’t those lovely blue shadows on the daisy petals?)

In my new watercolor class, I focus exclusively on painting florals, because they are so fun to paint loosely and fluidly. Here’s a painting by Susan D. that is part of the negative painting lesson in my new floral class:

Thanks to all my students for joining my classes! These watercolour workshops really help me to pursue my watercolour dream, supporting the costs of supplies, framing and exhibiting, and they also benefit me by helping me to really think about why and how I paint the way I do.
