Jean has been creating lesson plans with very easy to follow directions - she creates beautiful wet watercolor paintings that the beginner to advanced beginner can follow. She has taught me interesting techniques and I enjoy her classroom manner.

Welcome to my Skillshare channel. I hope this is where you will find inspiration to explore your inner creativity to create unique watercolor paintings.

I like to paint atmospheric watercolors and continually try to stretch the boundaries of watercolor, sometimes using other media to create interesting textures in my watercolors. I look forward to sharing my techniques with you here on Skillshare.
