Mary believes that one should paint what inspires the artist and has a personal connection. The student is encouraged to bring items or photos from which to work, but a different optional subject will be provided for each class when requested. The course will include various watercolor techniques and principles of design, as well as drawing, composition, and the role of color and values. Mary will teach interactively via discussion, demonstrations, personal attention, and examples.
