You *CAN* Learn to Paint Trees in Watercolor with Shirley Mercer, February 26-March 26



This class is appropriate for those who have SOME experience with watercolor and know what to expect when putting brush to paper. Painting trees is the subject with techniques to accomplish different views...distant, up-close, foggy, autumn and if time permits--snow-covered trees. Students will receive one-on-one time with the instructor and group demos. Techniques will be explained..."Why use this technique and when to use it."

Students may purchase materials from me or if using their own, should contact me to determine suitability of their paper and paints. My e-mail is:
