About This Class


The sound of the surf, the feel of the sand under my feet, the sun sparkling on the water like a million tiny diamonds...  If you're like me, you will be inspired after a day at the beach.  It makes me want to get out my paints and create something as beautiful as my ocean experience.  After a summer of fun and sun, I am so excited to share with you how I have painted some of may favorite Treasures of the Sea.  

From simple paintings with clean backgrounds, to more complex subject matter with detailed backgrounds, this class has something for everyone.  Whether you are a beginner or an experienced watercolor artist, you can find an engaging project to paint.  Then upload your project in the Your Project page to share your process, to get feedback or just for fun.  It's a great community and I have learned so much by sharing my own projects!

If you are looking for some sketching help, my class Rough Sketches as a Finished Product covers some tips and basic techniques.  Look forward to see you in the class painting your own Treasures of the Sea!
