The luminosity of watercolors is what fascinates and draws me to this medium. I like creating textures and continually try to stretch the boundaries of watercolor. I experiment with materials and media to get the results I want.

I studied painting at the Rhodesian School of Art in Zimbabwe and for four years in California with master watercolorist, Jerry Stitt, AWS.

I am a beginner watercolor artist with only a month under my belt so I found this to be a perfect course for me. Jean is so easy to follow, offered some great tips on the rule of thirds, composition, mixing of colors for this stormy painting, and patience, patience, patience! I watched the whole course in its entirety while taking notes and now will go back to my art table to put brush to paper. If I run into any problems I know it'll be easy to refer back to this course and watch again. Really enjoyed this and will be looking for more courses from Jean in the future.

Jean explains all the steps very well and gives good, practical tips. i love the end result of her painting and will sign up for more of her classes.

This was wonderfully instructive. I particularly appreciated the instructor's 'can do' attitude and approach, which as a novice I found highly motivating, inspiring and encouraging. Of greatest value and learning for me, however, was the subtle and practical demonstration of using one's intuition in deciding 'right' tone, color, composition, value and texture. I loved (and would chuckle to myself) each time the instructor reflected 'Yes. I like that' or 'Be careful, don’t over do it', etc. These were significant 'intuition points which i found very helpful. The instructor's thinking out aloud provided a valuable learning opportunity apropos guiding and gauging my own judgements about, and development of a painting.
