Enjoy learning how to paint this beautiful poppy floral, in a fun and relaxing atmosphere, all while learning new techniques in this watercolour workshop. A step-by-step painting demonstration will captivate your creativity. This 2.5-hour workshop is designed for beginners and all skill levels. Students will learn how to blend and layer watercolours on cold press 140lb paper, and explore wet on wet and wet on dry techniques. Supplied are some of my favourite high quality watercolours. My goal is to make the workshop inspiring, and allow you to experience the beauty of some of my painting techniques. I will share my tips and tricks and make your watercolour painting adventure memorable.

About the Artist

Alice Melo is a Creativity Studio Artist at the Tett Centre. She can be found there, in her studio on Lake Ontario, capturing her love of animals in acrylic on canvas with as much personality as her endearing subjects themselves. Drawing from her roots in the Azores and following in the creative footsteps of her grandfather, she brings a unique viewpoint, respect and faith in nature.

Self-taught in realism, Alice shows her dedication through the detail in her work but also shows a high level of intuition by capturing the spirit of her subject. There is a warmth and empathy that leaps into the hearts of the viewers. An important message that she's relaying on behalf of the animals that might not be in the spotlight otherwise: "the world is a better place because of them."
