Watercolor painting has a reputation of being either very hard or very easy. Miriam has created a series of workshops that can show anyone how to enjoy painting in watercolor with great results quickly. The first in the series begins with the premise that you are stuck on a desert island with three tubes of paint, one brush and some paper. And one black pen. You will find yourself addicted to this simple and fun style that creates a craving for learning more about watercolor without the fear.
In all of these workshops you will learn about transparent and opaque watercolors and how and when to use them effectively.
