2022 Workshop 2
May 2, 2022
Join Shayda Campbell in this joyful and inspirational series focused on both watercolor education and play. While filling the pages of a watercolor sketchbook with practice illustrations, floral compositions, watercolor techniques and finished pieces, Shayda will help you feel confident, calm and creative in your art-making journey.
Workshop 2 Introduction
Started May 2nd, 2022
Play, Practice and Finished Piece
We’ll explore watercolor doodle illustrations to practice and let your inner child play. Then you’ll use that information to guide your artistic style as you work out a finished piece.
Started May 9th, 2022
Watercolor Techniques, Mark Making and Pattern Painting
Grab a sketchbook and let’s fill some of those pages!! In this video we’ll get back to basics and experiment with some different watercolor techniques. Things like wet into wet, wet on dry, blooms etc, will all be utilized and explored as we make patterns, fill pages, get colorful and try out ALL our brushes!

Creating a Composition
In the third video we’ll develop our brushwork by working on one of my favorite subjects, watercolor florals. We’ll practice various flowers and leaves together with the larger goal of working our florals into a finished composition.
In this video lesson we move from floral practice through to a finished piece, all while checking in to note and understand how the decisions we make throughout the process contribute to our artistic style.

Small Choices, Big Style
In this video lesson we will paint a watercolor self portrait! When it comes to painting and illustrating people, there are so many decisions to make! How do you draw eyes? Are they detailed and expressive with perfectly placed pupils, or tiny black dots just sitting alongside the nose? Once again, we will use watercolor paints to create an illustration full of joy and whimsy and we’ll take note of the choices we make along the way, that especially in a self portrait, can contain an ocean of depth, meaning, and of course, style.
