Much like my previous paintings within puddles of paint, I took the fantasy one step further to create ballerinas within the two tones of paint. There’s something beautiful about working in such a simple form…Watch her come to life below.

After my first class, I found that many of you were interested in going back to the very basics of what watercolor is all about. Understanding one of the most enchanting mediums I’ve come know…
It brings me back to the day I was gifted my first set of watercolors. I remember sitting on a bench at the dining table in my parent’s house while my Aunt was down for a visit from Virginia. We sat there with my brothers for hours, painting away. She showed us how to make a color chart, which I intently worked on until I finished. I was fascinated! Something clicked (and thus began my many watercolors of horses). Watching my Aunt paint was another story- I loved watching the colors slowly form into an image. An image you may not have been able to guess right away, but then the “AHA” moment comes and you see it clear as day.
