NEWS & UPDATES new paintings for sale, Events, My You Tube Channel
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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXk_YC9Hxuk&list=PLyXo4tteiXQb4aI8-P9zSUDWVl-K0gRGy&index=18
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!
