The process of creating a watercolor painting demands tremendous patience and discipline. You build a painting – layer by layer – using thin veils of low-valued glazes that take advantage of a watercolor’s incredible light. The time-consuming process is challenging, rewarding, and at times, magical.

Teaching others the watercolor process is highly rewarding as well. You cannot rush a watercolor – because there’s nowhere to hide within this medium. Unlike oils and acrylics that allow you to cover up mistakes or turn them into something new, the transparency of watercolors reveals your every move to the viewer. This can be daunting to new and experienced painters alike. But if you can embrace the process as meditational, you will fall in love with the luminosity and magic.
