Painting should be fun.  But sometimes we get stuck and the “fun” is interrupted by an unexpected problem.  “Fun” becomes frustrating.  And frustration leads to unfinished paintings that might possibly end up hidden under the bed or at the bottom of a drawer.  Let Judy show you how to create paintings that don’t end up hidden… but are proudly displayed for everyone’s enjoyment.

Judy’s three-part painting process, along with her inspiration, creativity, passion, and knowledge of painting techniques that make you smile during the painting process, will help you create successful paintings and rescue paintings you thought were hopeless.

Judy’s 50+ year career as a professional art teacher has given her literally thousands of opportunities to share her love of watercolor.  If she were to simplify her painting plan into one simple sentence it would be… “Bring your toys (watercolor painting supplies) and come play (paint) with me.”  

Judy Morris became obsessed with watercolor painting when she was finishing her Masters Degree at Southern Oregon University in 1976.  Watercolor caught her attention and changed her life. She no longer looks at the world without seeing common things in a special way.  She enjoys simplifying shapes and then filling those shapes with interesting textures and patterns that entertain the viewers eye.  Judy has been a professional art educator for over 50 years.  She loves sharing her joy of watercolor with other interested artists throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, China, Japan… and even in Cuba and Dubai.  Judy is an elected member of the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society, and the Transparent Watercolor Society of America.  For more information contact Judy at:  judymorrisaws@gmail.com

JUDY MORRIS MATERIALS LIST 2019 

 

PAPER

Bring three or four sheets of your favorite paper.

I use Arches 140# and 300# cold press watercolor paper for my studio paintings.

 

PAINT

Bring the colors you know and love!  I use mostly Winsor & Newton and Daniel Smith brand tube watercolors.

 

BRUSHES

I prefer round brushes because they hold more liquid.  My favorites are Winsor & Newton series 233, all sizes…

 

OTHER “STUFF”

I will offer simple exercises that help explain the series of steps I follow during my personal painting process.  My studio paintings are painted from photographs.  You will also need a water container, paper towels, masking tape, transparent tape, a black Sharpie felt tip pen, a tube of white gouache (maybe), pencils, erasers, a craft knife, masking fluid (maybe), drawing paper, a few sheets of tracing paper, a couple of sheets of Friskit film (Con-Tact clear shelf liner works just as well and is a lot cheaper!), table salt, and Morton coarse Kosher salt (a box goes a long way… share with a friend).  Bring any other watercolor supplies that you can’t live without that fit in your bag!

You are also welcome to bring paintings in progress… or even completed paintings for critique.  This is your time to learn, create, experiment… and have FUN!
