Dark Rose

Lately, I’ve been experimenting with adding solid gouache backgrounds to my watercolor paintings. I love the combination of botanicals on a dark contrasting backdrop, much inspired by Graham Lott’s gorgeous photographs .

Some process…

Watercolor Beginnings

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.

I invite you to join me in experiencing watercolor from the very beginning in my latest online Skillshare class. Sign up here!

Madewell Event

Last night I joined Madewell to celebrate the grand opening of their new store in Chestnut Hill. I spent the evening sketching for guests, which is always a thrill! These are two of my favorite illustrations from the night. Although, I think this one really beats them all.PolkaDots_Small

Watch me paint in action here.

Thanks to everyone who came out! It was wonderful meeting you.
