Lesson from a live event

What students say

"This method allows us to hear you end-to-end and then use the video to execute it later. It's a good compromise between all-day vs interactive". Sue

"This is exactly what its like in class with you ! its fun !" Christin

" I like the way that you are presenting this workshop/demo. I am looking forward to viewing the video over and over" Agnes

"Love this format!" Susan

"This is more spontaneous, especially to hear what you are thinking." Trish


Sit back and relax or paint along

Primarily a demonstration, learn from my painting process as I deconstruct and change the composition, and turn it into a more dramatic painting, let's look at where to begin, the amounts of water to use, how to layer the color, how many water drops to add and more....

The biggest difference between this option and many of the other courses is that this is an on going demonstration, and unedited version of my painting process.

Suggested for intermediate - advanced students that have already taken some of my beginner courses

  • Start and stop the video anywhere you like.
  • Quality recording of the painting process
  • Also included the unedited live meeting

  • Focus on large petals
  • Flowing color
  • Water drops.
  • Sketch and reference photo provided.
