About This Class

Welcome to Watercolor Mosaics! I first taught this workshop to in-person students during Watercolors of Sicily, one of my signature art retreats which takes place in different countries every year.  

I was inspired by one of our cultural outings to Villa Romana del Tellaro, a Roman villa dating from the late Roman Empire with stunning mosaic installations. After our visit we returned to our retreat space with fresh inspiration to paint our own versions of mosaics using only watercolors.

I was amazed to see my students creating a variety of beautiful paintings, each one so unique and it was easy to observe everyone’s individual style because this workshop allows pretty much any subject matter, shape distribution and color palette combination.
