My watercolor nature journaling workshops are a safe space where beginners and experienced journalers alike gain the skills to create pages that recall the experience of a day in nature. They are designed to help heal the art trauma that torments so many of us.
I will show you how to mix colors using a very select and limited palette, followed by an exploration of drawing and painting techniques that quickly capture the subject. We continue by talking about how to call in and record our impressions of the environment, including time of day, weather, creature visitors, questions, prose and poetry. Finally, I will give you tips on how to arrange these elements on the page of your nature journal to create a lasting memory.
I have created a nature journaling kit that you can take with you anywhere. It is so simple and compact that you can actually sketch and paint while walking. Portability is the key in keeping up a consistent journaling practice.
I am also available for private lessons and special events.
