No - You don't have to be a Senior to take this class! Come and paint with a supportive group of students with varying degrees of painting experience. Guy supplies a line drawing which you will transfer onto your watercolor paper and a photo reference to follow along. Can't make all the classes? Guy sends emails with video demos on what was accomplished after each session for your reference so you can catch up.

Guy explains his composition, approach and easy to follow demos and gives you time to paint until it's time for the next demo until the image is finished.


Wanted to paint something colorful and cheerful

Can't help myself with the soft edges and crisp edges along with the harsh lighting creating a high contrasting image.

*I'll be painting on a quarter sheet of Arches 300lb CP paper.
