Watercolor - Blossoms And Foliage Form

October 12, 13, 2021

1:00 - 4:00 pm PDT

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

Colours that will be used in the projects

Here is my list of colours used in each of the main projects and demonstrations. You do not need to follow this list exactly. In most cases transparent colours will work best if you need to improvise. 

It is important to have some fresh paint (still in the tube) for some of the paintings. 


You will need an assortment of brushes

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

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.
