*UPDATE - This workshop is now full, but I plan on doing another one in late fall/early winter, location/date/time to announced.
I have decided to offer my very first watercolor workshop for adults, after having quite a few people ask me if I offer lessons in watercolor. This is a first for me, and a little out of my comfort zone, since I've only run kids art workshops in the past. I'm really excited about this new challenge and am looking forward to sharing some of what I've learned over the many years I've been painting in this medium.
Painting in watercolor can seem intimidating for many artists, but it doesn't have to be. Striking a balance between controlling the medium while allowing the paint to do what it wants to do is key to creating watercolor paintings you can be happy with. I will offer a few ways and techniques to help participants work towards that balance in a relaxed easy setting. Participants will practice watercolor technique to learn some of the magic of the medium, then will apply these techniques in creating their own watercolor painting of an autumn lake scene from a provided photo reference. I will work with each artist through the process, with tips on how to handle composition, color and brushwork.
Supplies needed: Each participant should bring a set of watercolors either as paint cakes or tubes, a watercolor palette tray, one 1/2" flat brush and one #5 round brush. I will supply watercolor paper and some additional paint. Any questions on supplies, please reach out to me through my contact page.

The colors of late spring on Lake George are featured in one of my newest Lake George watercolor paintings, No Wake Zone. This painting measures 10"x13", framed to 16"x19", now available for $375 at Mountain Gallery in Glens Falls, NY. I will have prints available of this piece later this summer.
