It was a beautiful sunny day, it was an enjoyable outdoor session. I had questions and the instructor was very helpful in providing more information. For a beginner class I believe there was enough basic information about colours (and mixing them).

Jane was great. I really enjoyed the class. It was very casual and suitable for a range of skill levels. Those who required more assistance could request it, and those who were more confident could be more self guided. Would attend again.

I love watercolour since it will create something unique each time even if it is unexpected or accidental, it teaches you how to deal with issues that might appear in your life.. how to enjoy every single moment without living in the past or overthinking about the future, it teaches you how to be patient while you are doing something, it teaches you how to be consistent in you daily practices to achieve you goals.

I painted this flower just in 10 minutes, in 2 phases, the first one was done to show the background and some shadows, and the second phase was done after it had completely dried, to focus on the details of the flower, watercolour is an amazing media to have a quick sketch and start painting.

Before pouring myself a cup of tea, I collected some camellias and decided they should sit together for this watercolour. Tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant and the two elements complement each other.

Title or Location: River and Trees
When I make these watercolor paintings, I'm aware that cameras and AI can make the art much faster than me. So I make these paintings using techniques that optimize the strengths of this medium.Exaggerated color palettes and wild brush strokes give the viewer a stronger sense of the communication happening between my mind, eyes, and hand as I make art. It's very low tech and personal. There are faster ways to make art, but none that express me better.

Chasing the sunset. I'm an artist and mother with a great love of running. Since becoming a mother in 2021, my free time has dwindled into near non-existence. So, when I do get out for a run, I always want to make the most of it. With little time to train, my exercise had been condensed into early mornings and evenings around my boy's sleep times. Despite the less favourable timing this has brought with it the glorious benefit of gorgeous winter sunrises and sunsets across the water.Alon
