Three Day Watercolour Workshop: Instructor Soon Y. Warren
Watercolour Group Studio Exercise
The class will learn how to create an image of chosen subjects, such as, a cut crystal bowl with florals, Koi pond water, or Silver pots in watercolour with a step by step process. To speed up the class exercise, Soon Y Warren will provide a reference photo and drawing for the group exercise. Following a painting demonstration, workshop participants will do their own painting in order to fully understand the process. While concentrating on technique, the concept of color theory, composition, and colour values will be incorporated into the workshop.
While painting workshop participants will learn:
- Glazing and washing techniques to create a luminous under painting
- How to utilize light and dark values in order to capture the sparkle of glass
- How to approach a painting
- How to incorporate the concept of colour theory and colour relationships into a painting
- Discussion and critiques will follow during workshop session
- In addition to the group exercise, participants are encouraged to bring current pieces to paint along with reference photos. To make the most of instructional time, prepare the drawing before the workshop.
To read about the process of how to paint same crystal bowl before workshop, read the step by step painting process of same crystal in my second book “Painting Vibrant Watercolour- discover the magic of light, colour and contrast.”

I wanted to let you know that I just received my online order of my favourite St. Armand Paper plus markers. I am so impressed with your service – thank you so much. I am a member of our local art centre here in Kimberley BC and we have very few choices of where to purchase our supplies. We usually leave our buying list to when we make our four hour journey into Calgary. You have made our lives so much simpler. I will passing on your website to my artist group of friends.
Thank you again.
I will be back.

Thanks very much Bob, the parcel arrived last Monday and the paintings are already hanging on the wall. I appreciate your excellent service.
I received your order promptly. I'm very impressed on how well packaged it was, as well as the choice of art supplies you have. I've now added you on my list of go-to suppliers...
- Carole Villeneuve
I do not do large orders often but have ordered with you once before. Your paint prices are so much better than Toronto art stores. If there are any product samples that you want to get rid of, I would be happy to receive them as I experiment with a lot of different supplies. Please save on packaging and send everything at one time. I stopped ordering from Amazon, because their overuse of packaging is out of control, and I prefer to support Cdn businesses as much as I can. Thank you for your great service, I had a great experience with my last order.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending, at no charge, the taper point shaper, I really appreciate it. Aside from this, I meant to drop you a note after I received my previous order which was also my first. Thanks for taking such great care in packaging the items purchased, such professionalism is rare to find, thank you!
I hope I’ll be able to broaden the array of items I will order from your store, I wish you’d carry PastelMat paper J
