Today joy of joys I got my computers memory enhanced so I can work with video clips at a faster rate. This will allow for more productive movie making skills.
The watercolor tip of the day is the last frame of this video where I pull back and show you what your paints should look like at the end of a painting session. Do you see it?
No muddy puddles, no puddles of brownish , brackish yuckiness.
What I have learned so far:
Keep your paints wet and don't over mix them to the point that they become dull neutral masses. Let your paints run together but don't let them mix themselves.
They need a chaperone. That is you the designated adult.
What I have learned so far! I painted,edited, loaded to youtube and brought it in for a safe landing here. I learned how to do everything...boy are my arms tired!
I have been learning imovie or maybe it has been "learning' me. It has been a challenge to get progressive images that show the substance of my value shape painting method. Today I managed to complete this short video I am calling apple 101. If you want to learn more about this way of painting I am booking sessions in my home studio now. Click here
What I have learned so far :
Everything is figure-out-able.
Sometimes you can't see something so obvious it is right in front of your face. The latest example of this is my home studio. It is a beautiful New England country space full of light and character. It is the perfect place to invite you to come and join me The Watercolor Coach in becoming more successful at your painting endeavors .
There are beautiful well tended gardens and a nature trail to a natural Fen that people come from far away to visit.
What I have learned so far:
Look at all your assets for what they are ...opportunities. They are everywhere and often not hidden but in full view of your eyes if you open up your mind to possibilities.
Why the Watercolor Coach?
Because watercolor can be frustrating and most books about it are loaded with technical information about layering and paper preparation. I have developed a direct way of approaching watercolor based on my years as a special educator. I have task analyzed ( broken down) each step into simple steps you can follow for increased success.

What I Have Learned So Far
Opening up my beautiful home studio for classes is part of a well rounded life. it is time to get out from behind the easel and the computer and make new friends and connections because I think that one of the reasons we are here. Sharing is to creativity as sun is to the garden.

If you have the same passion to paint no matter what the subject matter is I can help you get over the frustration and move quickly on to more successful work.
