  Some folks consider watercolors hard. Things run and go in unexpected places. Colors mingle in unexpected ways on moist paper. “Mistakes” can’t be readily erased.

    Do you ever paint studies in watercolor to later paint in oil? Just wondering if you took both watercolors and oils to Italy and France. I am delighted to learn of Twinklings – what happy and playful colors!ReplyCancel

    Someday I would love to take one of your workshops in Kentucky. I was born in Kentucky and, of course, it is my favorite state. (Sorry, Missouri!) I love your artwork and I know I could learn a lot from you. My biggest issue is budget…I live on Social Security. But I am forming an intention to sell enough of my own work to be able to travel to take your class! Thank you for all of your sharing and inspiration.ReplyCancel

    I’m new to watercolor and completely pulled in. Loving your joy and inspiration .
    When will you be doing a workshop in California and where exactly? I’m trying to be positive if you have noticed. I didn’t ask IF you are you going to be in California. :- )

    Hi Drema,

    I just started watercolor and now sketch my bumble bees and add the watercolor. Very much a beginner— but if you ever hold a class on watercolor, sketching, I am there. Let me know – thank you! DeniseReplyCancel

    How do I buy the twinkler minis that you selected for Italy from the website ? it looks like them come in a set of 24, but I don’t know how to choose the colours individually.ReplyCancel

    Dreama, each time I see your post or run into your work online, your watercolors and oils look more and more beautiful, I enjoyed your work the first time I saw it a few years ago and I still see it as some of the most beautiful artwork I’ve ever seen. Look forward to your workshop this nov in Costa mesa. BlessingsReplyCancel
