Independent Studies

As a watercolor artist, Guy thoroughly enjoys working with students at all levels of experience, exploring this medium. Learn the basics and techniques, working wet into wet, wet on dry and layering color for luminosity and intensity and  applying them to your images. Guy also demonstrates his various masking techniques to save whites and also for building an array of textures.

At Guy's Shop - It's really all about YOU!

While I sure have a great time teaching the basics, watching you learn the ease and challenge of moving paint on paper using different techniques; what really makes me tick is learning about you,  what moves you, your relationship with yourself and how to assist you in finding your voice and vision.

I don't want mini me's -I want you to find your glorious self!

I'm offering Virtual Zoom Classrooms 

Due to the Covid19 Social Distancing Guidelines, we are no longer meeting at my shop.

Until we can meet again in person at my shop, we are meeting via Zoom. You send me your photo references, and painting process via email or text, and then I load them into Dropbox; then we meet in a Zoom Classroom, and we all learn about composition, color choices, and approach to get you to a finished product. Just like when we meet in person, only in a safe environment until we can meet again in person. What I really like about this format is that you get to see and learn what each student is doing, which allows for a more enriched experience for all. Instead of just focusing on your image, you get to learn about different approaches for different images which broadens your experience. You get to also chime in for clearer instruction and share your opinions.

You need to send me your images by 5pm the previous day so I can upload the images into Dropbox.

Do you want private instruction and all attention focused on you and your idea, at a time scheduled for your convenience within my schedule?

I work with students for a higher level of experience in a faster and personal time frame vs working with groups.
