Success in watercolor has deep roots in mindset. When you are in the midst of a wash, whether controlled, free, or anything in between, the key ingredient is managing your mindset by redefining results as opportunities to be enhanced and any issues as puzzles to be solved.


Explore watercolor’s full potential by using a photograph’s essence as a reference to be captured, rather than copied. Each day you will work toward completing a series of remarkable scenes with Steve as your guide. More importantly, you’ll build skills at mastering a watercolor mindset that will serve you well for a lifetime of painting. This workshop will consist of demonstrations, discussions, and plenty of hands-on practice. All levels welcome.
