  • No past painting knowledge required, only a stock of watercolor paints!


Learn how to stretch your paint a little further, by not throwing your tubes after you squeezed the last drop. Open your tubes and there are lots of paint for further projects and paintings. Sometimes just organizing your tubes of paint, can show you at a glance how your inventory is, if you have too much of one pigment and not enough for another. Bev will demonstrate her own method of paint organization! With the extra pigments, she demonstrated a watercolour painting of three Tropical Birds.

Enjoy a BONUS lecture, where artists are shown 'how' to make their own ART Journal books from one sheet of Watercolour Paper!
