The focus will be on landscapes, with an emphasis on composition, values, center of interest.  Students will produce paintings of loose, colorful fall trees, a foggy version of cliffs and still water, a winter tree, a barn in snow, an archway and some other wonderful things.  If you have other subject matter you prefer to work from she will gladly mentor you through it.

She teaches a 4 step method that simplifies and takes the mystery out of watercolor.  It is so beneficial to paint with others who can encourage and guide us beyond our own abilities.  Watercolor is fun and relaxing.
