I will be demonstrating a technique I discovered on YouTube by artist Lena Gemzøe. It is a very “fluid” technique… so get ready to have fun and paint quickly! Check Lena out on Youtube for a preview of what we will be creating!




  • 140lb Watercolor Paper - ½ sheet of Hot or Cold Press (SHA has Watercolor paper for you!)

  • Watercolor Paint (Tubes of “Fresh Paint”):  4 colors you love – A mix of warm, cool & a neutral (Examples: Cobalt or Antwerp Blue + Yellow Ochre + Sepia + Ivory Black)

  • A “painting board” to hold the watercolor paper

  • Artists Tape

  • Old Credit card for “scraping on paint”

  • 2” – 3” Wide - Large Watercolor Brush such as a Hake Brush or an inexpensive brush from Home Depot, etc.

  • Assorted Watercolor Brushes – just the usual ones you use.

  • Spray bottle – for water

  • Rags and/ or paper towels

  • 2 Water containers – one for clean and one for dirty water

  • Faber-Castell Graphite Aquarelle Water-soluble Pencil – 6B or 8B (OPTIONAL) A set of 5 can be purchased for about $12 - $15 (available from Amazon, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Joann’s, Office Depot & Art Supplies Stores – see link below)






  • This technique is very fast and fluid! The most important thing to note is that you will need to squeeze out fresh paint onto a small square of mat board. I will supply the mat board squares.

  • Cold Press or Hot Press paper is fine, although Cold Press will allow for more granulation

  • The “painting board” is a must, as we will be lifting it up and down use to manipulate the paint on the paper surface

  • A “wide brush” will allow for moving around the paint and water easily

  • The “Graphite Aquarelle Water-soluble Pencil” is optional, but I like to use it to add small lines and for mark making.


I’m looking forward to sharing this technique with you!

Rock and Trees

Materials List


This will be a fun loose splashy project in watercolor. We will do a series of rocks and trees in a pleasing composition.
My inspirations come from a well known artist, Julie Gilbert Pollard.
You can see her loose painting style on the Internet just google her name.

I will provide a line drawing plus color photo of the painting.


This project will be a different approach in locking in dark areas first with acrylic paint to minimally define the rocks and trees. The rest of the painting will be rendered in watercolor. The masking agent will be applied for further defining texture, branches and leaf-like shapes.


Needed are your basic palette of watercolor paints:




Burnt Sienna

Cobalt Blue

Winsor Blue

Indigo Blue


Acrylic paint (2 tubes) to mix a dark like a brownish red or purply blue

If you don’t have any I’ll furnish it.


Masking agent
Rubber tip brush or old round synthetic brush, palette knife and toothbrush

Rubber eraser
140lb 1/4 sheet of watercolor paper, hot or cold press
Tape to tape down your paper to a board
Bucket of water
Pencil to freehand sketch
Tracing paper if you want
