Demo: Transparent Painting Over 2D Mixed Media at the Florida Watercolor Convention, Orlando, FL

September 20, 2019 11:50 am Free with convention ticket

Inspired with Watercolor

I have totally fallen in love with watercolor artist Ali Cavanaugh’s work. Check out her new book; Modern Fresco Paintings. They are the juiciest paintings of her kids and their friends. Love love love. So I have done mine! The Team Mate and Backyard Solo. Let’s see if I can get in Florida Watercolor with these? To be continued….

Private Art Instruction: The Art of Seeing

There is nothing like drawing to remind us that obstacles are always found in the mind. My favorite aspect of teaching is when I can help another person change their perspective and SEE things in a whole new way. Inevitably, it makes them better and at drawing and both of us, better artists. I offer private classes to develop that art of seeing.

The classes are individually designed to either be like the workshops that I teach, or to be sessions that work on a personal set of goals, such as finishing a certain project, enhancing drawing and painting skills, or further developing your artistic style. I treat art coaching like life coaching and we work on a variety of skills needed to succeed and thrive as an artist. Private art classes are $50 per hour with a 2 hour minimum for the first session.

My studio is at 6th Avenue Art Studios, 133 West 6th Ave in Mount Dora.

4 Paintings A Week

Our Daily Painting group is at it again! Heather Earnest, Pat Weaver, Nancy Johnson and Lynn Ashford and myself have committed to the challenge. To encourage bigger works, we have redefined our goals and decided on 4 paintings a week and a blog about it on Thursdays. My first week at it resulted in only 3 pieces but they are huge and I love them!! Here's what each of us did.
