"Marsh Light", 12 x 16" plein air watercolour

I am thrilled to announce the release of my new instructional DVD, "Watercolour On Location", produced by Whitepine Productions here in Calgary. It is for sale for the great price of $35 plus shipping and handling. You can see a preview of the DVD here.

I have sold several so far and comments coming back to me include:
"Sharon, actually watched it through twice - I think it's great! - 'plein air' painting has always been a mystery to me. Now I see how you can take a seemingly uninteresting scene and really paint your own interpretation of it. (I guess that's where the term 'artistic licence' comes in.) Really though, I can't imagine painting all those colors for those reeds wet-on-wet without making the dreaded 'mud'. I suppose they could be painted in layers, but much more laborious and not as exciting...! The negative painting was great to watch as well. I do recommend your DVD as it demonstrates how the experience of painting 'at the scene' can be very exciting and uplifting... And especially for anyone needing direction on 'plein air' composition. Also, to use your quote, "just having fun with all those colors" -Outside!"

"Great DVD, makes me want to do a watercolor."

Congratulations Sharon on your new DVD!!! I also enjoyed your paintings in the Southwood Calgary Public Library - fascinating to enjoy your plein air paintings on a cold indoor day.
