Check out my book, "The Artist's Guide to Painting Water in Watercolor", published in 2015 by North Light Art Books.

The content covers painting water in all its different states, from calm water to rough water, to open ocean. Detailed step-by-step demonstrations throughout the book guide you in painting reflections, rivers and waterfalls, fog and rain, as well as snow and ice.

Controlling Value and Colour, June 20 - 22, 2019 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
As artists, we have only TWO things at our disposal for producing paintings: 1) value, and 2) colour. This workshop will focus on these two fundamentals. Firstly, we will explore how to control value by doing value exercises and seeing why the value we want seems to be so elusive in watercolour painting. Secondly, we will explore how to get the colours we want by understanding how colours mix. Handouts will be provided. All levels of experience are welcome. Workshop fee is $230.
