Coming soon!
I'm still working on this page and getting things organized and updated.
Many of my pages are being transferred to a pdf format for easier access and
print ability. I'm a painter not a computer tech so things take me a little longer
to get done....and done correctly  (smile) But I'm learning!

Feel free to take a peek at what I'm doing and come back to see my progress.

In the mean time

Techniques for creating texture and highlights using a paper towel
Watercolor techniques are the foundation for learning how to paint with watercolors. In addition to the basic
brush strokes there are many other "tools" that can be used to create interesting textures. Some of my
students call them "short cuts" also sometimes called watercolor tricks.  I'll share tips for both tricks and
traditional techniques that I've learned along my own watercolor journey.
