Watercolour Wonder Workshop

Watercolour Wonder Workshop

Last Sunday we welcomed 20 lovely painters to the new studio to enjoy a Watercolour Wonders Workshop.

Covering the basics of both colour theory and watercolour, my mother, Diana Battle, and I, prepared a suite of exercises and examples that were designed to ‘learn by doing’.

It was our first workshop together and I really enjoyed spending the day sharing Mum with everyone! She’s a very talented painter and it was great to hear her explain some of her methods out loud – and to witness her ‘changing her mind’ as she paints!

Everyone took home a new set of watercolours, brushes and paper so I hope they are well used in the weeks and months to come.

Wishing you a Shiny Happy 2016!

After quite a late NYE with over 18 (mainly teenagers) staying the night, Annie and I escaped to make a little collaborative painting to ring in the New Year.

And we really do wish you a shiny happy year!

The ever delightful Tracy Verdugo came to town last weekend and left her mark on all the lucky participants in her Paint Mojo workshop, held in my Shiny Happy Art studio.

On Day One we connected with symbols, shapes, colours and ink alchemy and let go.

On Day Two we pulled it all together, learned to let go and marvelled at all the differences in artworks created in the one space full of very lovely women.

If you’d like to experience Tracy’s Paint Mojo magic, she has an eCourse coming up, a Paint Mojo book available now and offers workshops all over the world. It was a wonderful way to spend the weekend.

Tracy Verdugo is coming to teach her Paint Mojo Workshop in my Shiny Happy Art studio here in Toowoomba! (I’m seriously excited and it’s hard not to put ten exclamation marks at the end of that sentence!).

I flew to Melbourne in August 2012 to do this workshop and it was just brilliant. I hope you can come too.

Oh my. It’s gonna be GREAT!
