I have posted a complete watercolor lesson for a new design of mine based on a photograph I took at Linwood Gardens in Linwood, NY.  It is a charming, sun-dappled scene of a man riding a bicycle down a lane with Red Bud Trees.

I have posted a very extensive lesson in watercolor on my You Tube Channel titled "Pink Tree Peonies"  The design is a compilation of photos I took of Pink Tree Peonies at Linwood Gardens in Linwood, NY.  The piece is done on a full size sheet of watercolor paper 22 x 30.



June 18, 2022  I am now offering a You Tube channel  (click the underlined text and it will take you to my You Tube channel)  where I post lessons in watercolor, colored pencil, pastel, quick tips and demos.  I've just finished a very extensive lesson on a painting begun with watercolor and finished with colored pencils.  It's titled "Sally's Piano".  The original photo was taken by one of my students, Sally Forgensi, who is a piano teacher.  With some additions and deletions of elements from the original photo, I show just how I turned this into a painting.


6/18/22   I am currently working on a new lesson done entirely in watercolor.  This is a large painting, done on full size sheet of 300 lb. cold press paper.  The subject is pink tree peonies, designed by me from photos I took in May 2022 at Linwood Gardens, Linwood, NY during their tree peony blooming season.  The flowers were gorgeous.  I have lots of photos to use for future paintings.  I just started the painting, so there is no photo of it finished yet.  Pictured below is one of the photos I took that I used in my design.  I'm excited to work on this piece!
