Join award-winning watercolor artist and instructor Ron Stocke in this unique approach to painting the important elements in watercolor. Students will learn techniques on how to paint figures that connect to a painting, color harmonies that create mood, and perspective that directs the viewer’s eye.

Great for students from ‘advanced beginners’ and up, this exciting 2-day workshop will encourage you to paint energetic paintings with mood and expressive brushstrokes. Ron says, “Sometimes it’s the small things that separate us as artists.” He will gear this workshop around helping you find your individuality as an artist so that you can succeed moving forward
