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.

As with the 'Water colour techniques' course, this one too 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, colour, composition, value and texture. I loved (and would chuckle to myself) each time the instructor reflected 'Yes. I like that' or 'Be careful. Dont over do it', etc. These were significant 'intuition points' (some might call them 'choice or decision 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 the development of a painting. Thank you so very much once again!
