Nevada Watercolor Society - Blossoms And Foliage - Nature's Patterns

October 12, 13, 2021

1:00 - 4:00 pm PDT

Update: Hooray! Our videos are posted below. You will need to scroll way, way down the page to find them. There is a lot of "padding" between each video so keep scrolling.

Thanks for participating and I hope you will join me again. I am delighted that we had the chance to paint together. I hope you enjoyed our workshop and learned loads of new ideas and techniques.  I am offering the videos as a bonus for you to paint along with for 30 days. Please do not share. This page is only visible to the workshop students.


Hello! I am delighted that we will be painting together. I hope you will enjoy our workshop and learn lots of new ideas and techniques. The main demonstration videos will be posted here after the workshop. It takes a day or two for me to have the videos prepared and uploaded to this website, so please be patient. I am offering the videos as a bonus for you to paint along with for 30 days. Please do not share. This page is only visible to the workshop students.

Below you will find some reference photos, a general supply list, specific colours that I use in my demonstrations and a few student handouts.

There is no need to print the images or handouts. However, if you wish to make a copy of anything on this page, rather than printing directly from the website (and using a lot of ink!) just take a screen shot of the image or click and drag the images onto your desktop. You may need to resize before printing. 

My thanks to Linda Smith and The Nevada Watercolor Society for hosting this event.


Please watch this tutorial. You will achieve better results if you test your paints before the workshop...even if you only do your favourite colours!   TEST YOUR PAINTS

General Supplies for WC Floral and Nature's Patterns


Specific colours used in our projects

WC Paper

I will work on Strathmore Gemini CP 140 and Aquarius II paper, but use your favourite. There is no need to stretch your paper before the workshop. (hooray!)

For most demos, I will be working on smaller formats i.e. 7.5" x 11" (so that would be 1/2 of a quarter sheet).

You will need a non-non-porous surface - plexi-glass, plastic board or countertop for working wet in wet. 

For more information please take a look at the supply list your received when you registered. 

 You will need an assortment of brushes

Minimum required: 3/4", 1" flats/ a #8, 10 or 12 round/ a rigger brush

If you are concerned about colours or supplies please contact me:


For your notes

Although we aren't specifically painting lilies, this handout will show you the strategy I use for all of my florals.


Reference photos: Use your own or follow along with mine.
