To improve and develop my watercolor style, particularly in the study of light and movement while furthering my ability to produce interesting, marketable, art under the guidance of a highly skilled mentor. The woman who would be tutoring me, Catherine Hearding, is an award-winning watercolorist in Minnesota as well as an established teacher. Her's is a style of which I am most interested in learning to supplement and broaden my abilities as an artist. I am a skilled acrylic painter having produced many commissioned works over the years. My evaluation/outcome is simple. I should leave these private lessons with higher confidence and a better end result in my own watercolor practice and techniques resulting in more salable works. I expect my sales of art and public interest in my work to increase. I am also very aware that this will not happen overnight but instead will be an ongoing development of my skills and style. The changes to my work will be subtle and improve with time and practice positively affecting the outcome of my future art.
