Coaching on watercolor or acrylic techniques, planning and evaluating your paintings, or developing your own creative voice and style in a group setting.
Class starts at scheduled time and runs for 30 minutes per person enrolled (e.g. if there are 3 enrolled, we will meet for 90 minutes; if 4 are enrolled, we will meet for 2 hours, etc.).
Each student receives approximately 25 minutes focus on their work and questions, but you learn from everyone’s questions and topics. Small group coaching is an economical way to get the benefit of targeted individual coaching while also learning from the questions of others in the group.
This is the ideal way to get help with
- things that don’t seem to be working for you (e.g. “My washes keep coming out streaky” or “I can’t seem to find any good greens for my landscapes”)
- finding a suitable technique or solution to a particular technical problem with a painting (e.g. “I need a good way to suggest grasses and weeds” or “I can’t figure out how to reserve these little white flowers in the meadow”
- help with designing and planning your own paintings (how to simplify and edit, how to create a strong design, choosing colors & techniques to maximize impact and expressiveness, figuring out how to reserve whites and lights or the painting sequence)
For the most efficient use of your time, please send the following (if you have them) AT LEAST ONE DAY AHEAD OF TIME:
- any photos (reference photos or photos of sketches or work in progress) you want me to look at
- questions/topics you want assistance with that might require demonstrating a technique
- any short video you want me to review in order to help you diagnose problems with technique
This allows me to prepare supplies I might need in order to demonstrate techniques for you, and to have photos saved and loaded into the software I use to “point” at things, make annotations, and suggest ideas for changes.
