How do we paint white snow with watercolor paints? Join me in this fun class to learn some techniques for painting a winter landscape including negative painting and wet into wet.

The focus of the workshop will be to enjoy learning how to paint snow scenes using different watercolor techniques. Photos will be used for reference while artists put into practice good composition, values, colors and edges.

Class begins with a discussion and demonstration, then working together, step by step, we get right to painting. Students will get individual feedback throughout the day. We will discuss many aspects of creative painting techniques and process with emphasis on enjoying the flow of water and paint on paper. Let’s have fun with the magic of watercolors!


Kathleen is an award-winning artist with a passion for watercolor painting and life! Painting in the studio as well as Plein Air (outdoors on location), she immerses herself in the fluid and unpredictable qualities of watercolor paint to capture the brilliant light and colors of nature.

Kathleen paints in a realistic painterly style, bringing the effect of changing light and color that describes the atmosphere, context, and shape of the scene to the paper.

Kathleen’s artwork has been published in international and national magazines including American Watercolor Magazine, Plein Air Magazine, Southwest Art and Practique des Arts.

Kathleen was formally trained at the Art Institute of Boston and at the Massachusetts College of Art, graduating from both schools with a BFA.
