Painting Challenge: People at Work

This will stretch us to paint something a lot of us do not usually paint… people! For this week’s challenge, let’s paint people at work.   Please don’t stress about it, or overthink it.  Keep it simple.

What is the prize?   

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Graham Berry, the prize for one random winner is a one-year subscription to Graham’s courses: Paint with Graham.  There are over 100 full tutorials available immediately with a new tutorial added every 2 weeks.  His painting style is perfect for both beginner and experienced artists.  He will help you take your watercolor skills to the next level to continue to grow as an artist.

If you’d like to try a tutorial for free, sign up here.   I learned so much from his free tutorial about using a limited palette, creating warm light, and to allow the paint to “do its thing” and not fiddle with it too much.

And I am very excited to share he has scheduled a workshop in Italy, September 8 – 14, 2024.   For info:
