I am excited to share my inaugural Masterclass called COMPOSE with you online and to thus make it accessible wherever you may be.

This is a long format masterclass suited for people who wish to do deep focussed work towards making paintings emote what the artist feels. Despite this topic being ripe for extreme abstraction, we will limit the inaugural batch to impressionistic realism and will push to adopt direct watercolors as a method.

Is this a watercolor workshop?

Yes, but it won’t teach you basics of watercolors. We will discuss how to make the images emote the emotions an artist wants to capture through exercises. You can do that with watercolor plus are welcome to bring your watercolors & media of your choice. The focus will not be how to gain a motor skill but will be about using existing technical skills to enhance the quality of our work. In effect, we will learn mental skills.
