Paint Baby Ducks In Watercolor!
Learn an easy step-by-step process to paint a bright colorful baby ducks
My new course painting Baby Ducks In Watercolor ! You can take the class by yourself or use it as a fun activity to enjoy with your kids, grandkids or “artsy” friends.
You’ll get a step-by-step tutorial to help you make a painting you’ll be proud of. First I’ll show you how to get a good drawing down with a template. Then I’ll teach you a loose and easy way to work “wet into wet,” soften the edges of your painting and add in the details. The end result will be a happy image of two little ducks featuring the bright cheerful colors of spring.
I don’t know about you, but spring is one of my favorite times of the year. It’s the time of growth and rebirth from a long winter. Growing up we had ducks and chickens, and every spring we would have a new group of darling little baby ducklings. They are one of my favorite animals!
If you’d like to grow your painting skills, capture some of the cuteness of baby ducks and have fun in the process, this class is for you.
As a native of San Diego and graduate of San Diego State University, I have been painting and exhibiting my work for more than 30 years throughout Southern California. The bold lines, fluid shapes, and my color palette are influenced by my father’s paintings and my degree in graphic design.
In much of my work, I seek to capture our emotional and visceral response to a fleeting but sublime moment in time, a combination of color, intensity, movement, and expression.
While known for my representational and abstract work, my love is for portraits, and I have been honored with awards that include Best in Show for Cowboy at the San Dieguito Off Track Gallery and the Logan Award and Golden Award for Maasai Boy at the San Diego Watercolor Society’s 34th International Show.
For over a decade, I have been running workshops and juried watercolor shows in the San Diego area while teaching all levels of watercolor painting at a local community college and in my studio in Encinitas, CA. I find tremendous satisfaction from teaching and seeing my students, improve, gain confidence, and express themselves through watercolor.
