I’m excited to teach a beginner watercolour class at the Kelowna Art Gallery next month.

This workshop is perfect for you if you have never tried watercolour painting, or maybe you have dabbled a little but never learned the basics.

I’m going to go over the techniques and skills needed to develop a foundation of watercolour basics.

Some of the things I’ll be going over are clear washes, textures, clouds, trees, mist, reflections in water, snow, and more.
