I am a practicing artist of almost 9 years! Being creative is a great way to express yourself and bring forth a piece of mind. From abstract painting to hyperrealism, we can dive in together to discover some of your favorite ways to express your creativity. Whether it be through watercolor, acrylic, oil painting or another medium, painting what the student wishes to gain further experience in is what we will accomplish. My aspiration is to be able to let each student discover and further the true artist within them! Shoot me a message and let’s get creative! All skill levels welcome!
Watercolor painting has a way of showing emotion and expression. The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop. Students will be introduced to the color wheel, basic materials needed, perspective, and the differences between realistic and impressionistic painting techniques. The students main objective is to learn, by painting what the individual wishes to paint (personal projects that sparks and continues the creativity within). Materials are not included. Watercolor painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals. Note: For virtual sessions, the student will need to create a conducive workspace that will allow teacher/student viewing of art work in progress. The student will need a workspace with lots of light. Often, I will ask to see the students progress, so that I may be able critique and give advise on their work in progress. For short-term sessions (virtual or in-person), the teacher and student will collaborate and determine how the student will get the most out of their session.
I teach what you want to learn. Lessons may include: Basic or advanced techniques. Mixing vibrant hues. Wet-on-wet. Dry brush. Masking. Glazing. Dew drops on flowers. Textures--using salt, layering, sponges, scratching, lifting, etc. Considering your light source. Loosening up. Managing the water to pigment ratio. Paper selection. Setting up your palette. What paints to use. And brushes: how many, what kind and brand? Painting outdoors in the open air, or from photographs, or from a still life. Using your phone to help you critique your painting. All levels--from beginner to advanced. Demonstrations on creating watercolors in the style of famous watercolorists like John Singer Sargent, or Winslow Homer. Subject matter can include journaling, watercolor sketching, landscapes, seascapes, florals, abstracts, still life, urban settings, color grids, and more. Additionally, you can schedule a lesson and let me know that you want to use it as a critique to review some of your work. I recommend the 30 minutes or the 45 minute session for a critique. Generally the 30 minute session is a bit too short for a complete lesson. I recommend you start with 45 minute lessons.

My first lesson was great. Melissa started off very basic for me, as I requested, and answered all my questions and emails.
Jan (Watercolor Painting lessons with Melissa M.)
Sharon was so personable and started me with exactly what I needed. I've skipped over a lot of the basics when doing watercolor on my own and I'm glad to have a direction. Results will be good.
