In this class we will focus on nature painting. We will learn tips and tricks on how to paint trees, clouds, flowers, mountains, and other objects found in nature.

My friend asked me to paint something special for her to hang in her newly built home. She chose a photo of the beach she grew up on. It means a lot to her as she is really missing friends and family since she moved away.

The original was taken by my friend just as a storm came in while she stood on the beach at Gorlston Upon Sea. She loved the mood of the last light on the sand before the dark clouds blotted them out. And I was drawn to that too.

Title or Location: Wild Carrots At Dusk
I named this watercolor "Wild Carrot At Dusk" (18"x14.25") I wanted to capture the sun setting on some Wild Carrots or Dacus Carota you probably call it Queen Anne's Lace. This painting is part of a series where I am working to feature everyday things in our environment to celebrate them and have the viewer look closer at their glory. Therefore I use beautiful colors and knockout textures to bring out the beauty in nature, hopefully making you look twice. The symbolism of this wild flower is san

I am trying to paint in watercolour without doing to much drawing first. I was pleased with this attempt.My Dad used to grow lovely roses and Sweer Williams. He always gave Mum red roses on her birthday or wedding anniversary. Sadly they both died a few years ago but painting these flowers brought back happy memories.
