I really enjoyed the event, it was the first time I have ever painted outside, so that was a challenge and one thing I would make clear in any future information is to remind people to bring something waterproof to sit on. Obvious, I know, but by the time I had packed my painting tools I completely forgot the rest. That said, it was a lovely session, well run in a small, inclusive group.
Preston Shannon
I'm a freelance Illustrator and a student at the University of Plymouth. I've been creating illustrations for a very long time now. I understand the challenges that come with taking on a new skill and trying your best to develop it.

When it comes to watercolour painting an understanding of basics is very much needed. I'm here to help you through your artistic venture. I will teach you basic techniques, the application of light and shadow, a bit of colour theory and sketching.

Preston Shannon is available for private bookings

Please bring your own supplies which include at least Two paintbrushes (one thin tipped and another broad tipped), A Cup to hold water to lighten out or wash out paints in and a painting inks set. Please don't worry about variety in the inks, we mainly require primary colours.

Title or Location: Bridgend Noss Mayo Plymouth UK
I am semi-retired and an amateur watercolour artist. We have recently moved to Devon from Yorkshire and we live in Noss Mayo near Plymouth. Noss and Newton Ferrers are classic South West villages, where houses huddle around the sides of a deep "Y" shaped valley that the Yealm estuary washes into. Bridgend is the farthest inland point of the sea on one side. The watercolour is from a photo taken on the road near Bridgend. It is the colours of the sand and water at low tide and distant hills that

This is the first page in my newest watercolor sketchbook. It's an image I created from multiple years of beach going and what I imagined I would look like sitting waiting for the fish.

This is a watercolour of my eldest son's dog Rousty, when he came to visit last Easter. Its the first time I've painted a pet I'm quite pleased with it.

Dallas Watercolor Group
Title or Location: Trinity River Audubon Center
This painting was inspired on one of the many beautiful trails at the Trinity River Audubon Center. I recently joined a Dallas Plein Air painting group and this was my first outing. Mesmerized by the morning sun. Inundated by the sounds of nature. It was a blissful experience. It had been so long since I had been with nature and admittedly caught the plain air bug. There was a unifying experience as nature never stopped all around me and neither did I!

Phoenix Watercolor Group
Title or Location: Scottsdale Arizona
I work in sketchbooks 98 of the time with my favorite pens. I prefer to draw live rather than from photos, so at night I find my characters on TV. Watercolor or other mixed media may find its way into the drawing, depending on which sketchbook I used. This was drawn in a Strathmore 500 series mixed media softcover book. The paper takes mixed media extremely well.

Title or Location: Fort Bend County Texas. This fence post stands next to a gate on a friends ranch, just off of Hwy 59 S.
On February 3rd of this year (2024), I was at my music duet partners ranch near Beasley and Rosenberg Texas, just off of Hwy 59 S. We often times go out to the country to rehearse our music when the weather is nice. I?ve driven through the gate and past this post many times before but on this particular day, the sun was shining just so perfectly and the old, rusty, broken chain really captured my attention. I jumped out of the truck and snapped a few photos, knowing I would eventually paint this
