wilderness watercolor landscapes

Satisfy your wanderlust...
without leaving your desk.

No matter how long it's been since your last art lesson (or your last trip to the mountains), learning to paint the wilderness has never been more approachable or fun. Especially when the worries of the world are weighing you down, an art adventure into the wilderness might be just what you need to remember that hope and magic are alive and thriving all around you... 

...the only question is, what are you waiting for?

"These paintings are so detailed and gorgeous, my city-girl self just wants to dive into them like Mary Poppins."

Alli Koch, artist and bestselling author of How to Draw Modern Florals

My whole goal with this book is to make watercolor landscapes doable at every skill level. The projects start simple with basic techniques and gain more depth and complexity as your skill level deepens. By the end, you'll have 30 stunning scenes worthy of displaying in any home.

30 Stunning Landscape Scenes

step-by-step

all the things

In addition to 30 unique projects, here are some of the topics we'll cover in the book:

- my favorite supplies + how to use them
- basic watercolor techniques
- wilderness subjects like skies, mountains, trees, flowers, and bodies of water
- wilderness techniques like mist and depth
- color theory basics
- and more!

Any other year, I would plan a multi-city book and workshop tour so I can meet you in person. But, 2020, you know? 

Luckily, the power of the Internet gives us the chance to meet face-to-face, even if it's not in person. Join me for a live, online Zoom workshop so we can get up, close, and personal on our watercolor adventures.

The bonus part is that she's here to share her brilliance so everyone can paint along, creating new life into pieces of their very own."
