Exercise 2 - Circles and Stones

This exercise is about watching the wet colour bleed into each other to create natural organic marks -then we use these marks to inspire the decoration

Exercise 3 - Botanical Echoes

This is using a mop brush and working wet into the watercolour.

Starting with some simple botanical inspiration from leaves and natural shapes from around your home - I will show you how to finish with an abstract impression of the shapes

These techniques of markmaking and layering with watercolour are an addictive pleasure

It is a beautiful and fun way to make art that, after you have discovered it, can be incorperated into all of your future art endevours

and you can interact with others as we all learn these modern and contemporary methods together, and discover where they can lead us

They are an experiential pleasure

They are mindful and keep you in the moment

From choosing your colour schemes

To creating your backgrounds

To collecting shapes and markmaking patterns from around your home

There is an instructional video to guide you on your way

Other Workshops

Before I went completely abstract - I first became absorbed in mark making

It helped me to loosen up and realise how pleasurable art was without the boundaries of expectation

Every mark is a surprise - and there is no pressure because it can even become a background that you paint over - it is a wonderful feeling

As a controlled artist for over 30 years I felt a rush of the wonder I had experienced as a young artist just learning everything, it was so exciting

Since then I have been breaking more and more boundaries and have immersed myself into abstract art - I LOVE IT - and you can do it too
