We would then discuss different types of paper and to consider the different Quality, Weight, and Texture that works best with watercolor .

Finally, we would look at the different types of watercolor paints such as pan watercolor, tube watercolor, and liquid watercolor to experiment with different strokes and styles.

Taken at local park as sun was setting. The light as the sun was setting reminded me of a painting from a tutorial I had previously worked on. It was reminiscent of the French countryside and was something that looked so peaceful.

I find painting dogs very interesting because their appearance is so varied. This golden doodle is from a friend's photo of her pet Gracie. I painted a loose background in watercolours then painted negatively to pick out the wavey and curly areas of her coat. Gouache picked out some lighter areas. I find painting without a drawing creates a looser result. I start with the nose and measure from there.

I saw a photo of a beautiful cat on Facebook and asked the owner if I could paint it - Matt Raatz agreed and I created this line and wash using ink and Roman Szmal watercolours and Posca pen for fine details.When I showed the painting to Matt he asked to purchase the original and it has since been shipped to Wisconsin.
